The 59th Annual Zilker Summer Musical
The Wizard of Oz
(July7 – August 12, 2017)

The ZTP Board and staff have selected the classic The Wizard of Oz for the 2017 season. This musical, based on the book by L. Frank Baum, was Broadway’s biggest hit in 1903. These cultural classics, in turn, inspired the 1939 movie version – garnering an Academy Award for Judy Garland.
For more than a century, The Wizard of Oz has enchanted readers, theatre, and movie goers alike. Now, ZTP will bring this cultural treasure to the historic, outdoor theatre at The Zilker Hillside. ZTP delights in presenting shows that share the magic of musical theatre with children as well as Central Texans – and visitors from all over the world – of all ages. This summer, the ZTP team looks forward to welcoming over 45,000+ Hillside audience members to follow the yellow brick road “over the rainbow.”
ZTP’s The Wizard of Oz is offered at no cost to the public (donations gratefully accepted) during the six-week run on Thursday through Sunday evenings, July 7 – August 12, 2017. The “curtain” goes up right around dusk at 8:15 pm, but arrive early with your low-backed chairs and blankets to get your spot!
