Animals are prohibited on the hillside during performances of Zilker Theatre Production's Summer Musical "Shrek" (service animals are exempt from this policy). Any non service animal, leashed or unleashed that is on the hillside premise during the hours of 6pm-11pm, Thursday- Sunday will be asked to leave.
Claiming turf early and leaving blankets on the natural surface is unfair to the rest of the audience and damages the grass. Please also do not take rocks to secure your blankets from the back wall. We should all help Mother Nature support the trees and natural formations by leaving pieces of the naturally forming rock wall where Mother Nature put them.
Please do not place chairs on the hillside with legs more than 6 - 8 inches high. The best seat in the house often obscures the view of the performance for an entire group. If you absolutely need to have a chair for medical reasons, arrive early to access the new and improved ADA space in front of the audience. This area is on a first come first served basis; there are no reservations. If you need to use a full size chair, please place yourself on the far sides of the audience so that you are not blocking anyone else’s view.
Food & Beverages
Alcohol is not allowed in the parks area and will be not be consumed, distributed or tolerated at the Zilker Hillside Theater. Trash cans are conveniently located in many places around the theater; please take advantage of them during and after the event. Please be conscientious and do not litter or leave broken items behind. Food or beverages can be part of an enchanting evening but please make sure that the remnants are properly discarded or make their way back to the fridge.
ADA Accessible Parking
ADA Accessible parking and wheelchair access are located to the immediate left and right of the back stage area. There is a ramp that leads to a continuous route to the ADA area in front of the stage. ADA Accessible Parking spaces are limited so “drop off” is often required. Again, there are no reservations; ADA Accessible Parking is on a first come, first served basis.
Please be aware this is a natural hill with an underground irrigation system. The sprinkler heads are not trip hazards but do exist and are located about the hillside. Please walk with caution when going up or down the hill. There are some dips and sharper grades hidden by grass which are not readily apparent. We are very concerned for your safety and enjoyment.
Smoking is strictly prohibited in Zilker Park.
While we love our children and welcome them to all Zilker Hillside Theater productions, they can be occasionally overly exuberant. Please monitor your children at all times. If your children’s behavior becomes a distraction to other people and interferes with their enjoyment of the production, management will ask the parents to calm them and return them to their blanket space. Thank you for your efforts in this regard.
Porta-a-potties are provided for your convenience.
