Free Shakespeare in Zilker Park is an experience I look forward to every year. It combines three of my favorite things: Shakespeare, being outside under the stars on an early summer evening, and free stuff. That’s right! Shakespeare in the Park is completely free theater, although they gladly accept donations.
This is a great place to take a special someone or your group of friends, and let the Bard’s words wrap around you while the fireflies dance.
Every Why Has a Wherefore
So who are the minds behind this outdoor gem? Each year, Austin Shakespeare collaborates with the City of Austin to put on the production. Austin Shakespeare is an organization devoted to presenting high-quality theater in Austin. In addition to Zilker Park, they give performances at The Long Center and Curtain Theater.
