Free Live Theater @ ZILKER Hillside, the Newsies production is a HIT, playing now through Aug. 2022 Thurs-Sunday nights @ 8:15, bring your blanket and cooler


Reviews Are In...  Disney's Newsies is a Hit!

Audiences and critics agree - ZTP's Disney's Newsies "occupies Zilker Hillside Theatre spectacularly!"

Bob Abelman of the Austin Chronicle wrote:

" and dance are right in the wheelhouse of Zilker Theatre Productions' outdoor musical ventures. So, the litmus test for this one is whether the talent on stage – under Joey Banks' direction and with the accompaniment of a fantastic 10-piece orchestra with Beth Everett at the helm – can sell these goods with the same charm and moxie that their characters sell theirs.

Yes, they can. ... every one of them offers a distinctive, thoroughly endearing character and radiates youthful energy and enthusiasm. The ensemble fills the double-wide stage with waves of pitch-perfect sound"

We are so thrilled so many have joined us for Disney's Newsies already this summer, but there are many more chances to come enjoy the show! Catch a performance Thursday-Sunday nights at 8:15 p.m. through August 13 at the beautiful Zilker Hillside Theater!

See you on the Hillside!
