What to Know Before You Go:
- The show starts around 8:15 p.m. with intermission around 10 p.m., and the show ended around 11:20 p.m. With getting to the car, out of the parking lot and sitting in traffic, it can be a late night for little kids. Leave early if you are not prepared to stay out that late.
- Parking is located at 2201 Barton Springs Road with limited space available. See alternative parking options here.
- Beverly S. Sheffield Theater is located across from to Barton Springs Pool.
- No pets, glass containers or smoking is allowed.
Blankets and folding chairs are permitted. Full-height lawn chairs are only allowed along the walls at the top of the hillside, as they block the view of other patrons. Low-height, low-backed “beach chairs” and blankets are allowed in the section behind the lighting poles on the second level. Also note that there are some centrally located spots that are reserved for donors and cast members’ families. Pack a picnic basket and/or cooler. A variety of drinks and snacks can be purchased from the theater’s concession stand with proceeds benefiting the production. Bring bug repellent. And if you have any hand-held fans, you might wish to bring those, too, or anything that helps you stay cool in the warm summer temperatures.Zilker Theatre Productions is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and can only provide this annual entertainment through contributions. So during intermission, you will be asked to donate what you can to support these shows.
