Austin Shakespeare performs for free in May at the Zilker Hillside Theater.

Austin Shakespeare returns next month to the Zilker Hillside Theater for its annual free production in the park, the first since the start of the pandemic.

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will run Thursday through Sunday, May 5 through May 29. Shows begin at 8 p.m. The Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theater is located in Zilker Park.

We are thrilled to bring Austin-tatious creativity to what has been hailed as Shakespeare’s ‘perfect comedy’ with professional Austin actors playing lovers, fairies and comics, featuring a pop music mix by L.B. Bartholomee,” said Austin Shakespeare Artistic Director Ann Ciccolella.
