Miller Outdoor Theatre is celebrating its 90th year of performances this summer with kid-friendly performances all summer long.
All shows are free, but in order to reserve a seat in the covered, stadium-style seating area, tickets must be picked up from the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the same day as the show. Tickets can be picked up from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., with a maximum of 4 tickets per person over the age of 16. Ticketed seats are released five minutes before show time for general seating.
Tickets are not necessary for seating on “the hill” or for morning shows. For hill seating, be sure to bring a blanket or chair to sit on. While the snack bar is often open, viewers are also allowed to bring in their own drinks and food, as long as it follows the requirements for Hermann Memorial Park.
The June schedule for kids includes both plays and musical performances.
