Miller Outdoor Theatre opens March 29th

Beginning March 29, the iconic venue in
Hermann Park presents its latest slate of
opportunities for visitors to experience
extraordinary performances for free. Miller
Outdoor Theatre is set for a diverse range of
cultural arts performances in 2024—from
Ronstadt Revue featuring Gesenia on
opening night to the Houston Shakespeare
Festival in August.

“We look forward to welcoming audiences
back on the Hill as we kick off the 2024 season next month,” said Managing Director
Claudia de Vasco, whose tenure overseeing Miller Theatre Advisory Board’s
programming efforts began January 1. “Miller Outdoor Theatre has a storied history of
offering a diverse range of exceptional arts programming, and I’m thrilled to join the
tradition of bringing high-caliber performances to Houstonians for free as we look toward
the next 100 years.”

Miller Outdoor Theatre is unique in its ability to provide free-to-the-public programming
that spans genres, cultures, and artforms. The coming season includes performances of
soul and Motown music favorites, Bollywood, Broadway, and the Latin American
Philharmonic Orchestra, among others. The Miller Presents series again offers exciting
performances such as Samara Joy and Classic Albums Live. Annual standards Houston
Ballet and Houston Symphony also return, along with Miller Outdoor’s tradition of
presenting mid-week youth matinees, with shows from Express Children’s Theatre, Prelude Music Foundation, and Magik

is offered on select nights.
