ZTP's The Wizard of Oz_Coming Summer 2017

 

What do you love about the
Zilker Summer Musical?

From Kate Hix, ZTP’s Executive Director:

I’ve been supporting the summer musical since I was a child in the 80s and 90s. Coming to the Zilker Summer Musical was my favorite thing to do all year, and I’d come as many times as someone would bring me each summer!

 

My mom would give me cash to drop in the buckets and I loved it — I asked for more bills so I could approach as many of the actors as possible. It was a small way to be a part of the magic of the show. Now my own daughter loves to drop money in the buckets and meet the actors.

 

At age 3, Maya is already a seasoned veteran, having attended both Hairspray and Shrek The Musical multiple times, and looks forward to sharing The Wizard of Oz with her new baby brother. Maya says the best part of the Zilker Summer Musical is eating cotton candy while everybody sings her favorite songs. The fact that a child so young can enjoy a musical over and over again (without disturbing other patrons like I’m sure she would inside a traditional quiet, dark theatre) is such a magical experience to witness!

 

Maya at the Zilker Summer Musical

As a parent and a musical theater lover, I support Zilker Theatre Productions because I believe the Zilker Summer Musical is a crucially important Austin cultural treasure…and because I love to see the look on my daughter’s face when the first actors step onto the stage and the orchestra starts the overture at sunset. It is truly one of the most magical theater – and outdoor – experiences imaginable. Even if I weren’t the Executive Director of ZTP, I would still tear up at the magical moment the “curtain rises” on a Zilker Summer Musical!

From Julie FP., Rindge, NH:

While visiting my family in Austin last summer, I brought my grandchildren to ZTP’s Shrek The Musical. I expected to enjoy their excitement and enjoyment, I was happily surprised by my own captivation and delight in this professional production. What a treasure for Austin! The sets were innovative, the costumes over the top, and the leads and chorus energetic with sweet singing and well executed dancing. I’ll be back next year!

 

Prima & Wes W., Austin, TX

We loved Shrek! Our kids (ages 6 and 7) were glued to the show. The singing, music, dancing and acting were excellent and very entertaining. We will make this a family tradition every year!

 

Dragon in ZTP's Shrek The Musical

 

Karen P., Austin, TX

We adored Shrek! The Dragon was amazing! Best wishes for The Wizard of Oz success this year!
