Located on nearly eight acres in the heart of Hermann Park, Miller Outdoor Theatre is the only free open-air theatre of its kind in the United States.

It is a home away from home for some of Houston's most dynamic arts organizations such as HITS Theater, Houston Grand Opera, Dance of Asian America, Festival Chicano, Houston Symphony, Theatre Under The Stars (TUTS) and a host of other multi-cultural groups and theater companies. Every performance in its March to November season is free.

For more than 90 years, Miller Outdoor Theatre has been a place where special memories are made: of squealing with delight while rolling down the hill--over and over again….of first dates and surprise proposals…of the Houston Symphony and fireworks on July 4th…of the first time to experience Shakespeare or an opera or mariachi or the music of Motown…of crowds of thousands simultaneously leaping to their feet to offer a standing ovation …of sharing great performances with friends and family and total strangers…these are Miller memories.  The stately oak trees on either side of the stage that flanked the original bandstand built when Miller opened in 1923 still stand sentry today. Miller Memorial Theatre, as it was originally called, looked a bit different back then, but one thing remains the same: audiences have never been charged admission for the quality and quantity of entertainment it provides.  Houston can boast that Miller is the only proscenium venue of its kind in the country that presents over 120 performances each season - totally free of charge.
