Each summer, the Houston Shakespeare Festival produces a season of Shakespeare plays. Since its inception in 1975, HSF has entertained nearly a half million theatergoers with free performances in Hermann Park's Miller Outdoor Theatre. Festival audiences are as diverse as Houston itself, with many people experiencing live theatre for the first time. The Houston Shakespeare Festival has grown into one of the major events on Houston's summer entertainment calendar.
Now celebrating its thirty-seventh season, the Houston Shakespeare Festival has grown into one of the major events on Houston's summer entertainment calendar. HSF is a recognized Equity theatre.
Admission is free, but tickets are required for covered seating and are available at the Miller Outdoor Theatre Box Office between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. and one hour prior to each performance. The green behind the covered seating is free, open to the public and a perfect place to bring lawn chairs, picnics and blankets. For more information, call the Miller Outdoor Theatre Box Office at 281-FREE-FUN.
