For this family-friendly summer production, Zilker Theatre takes on the story about the ogre and his zany donkey friend. And here’s the drill: Picnic baskets and coolers are welcome, but glass containers are not. The theater’s concession stand has food and drinks for sale. No unattended blankets before 6 p.m. No pets. Rent low-back chairs at $5 per chair.
Full-height lawn chairs are only allowed behind the low rock wall up the hill.
Details: 8:15 p.m. Thursday-Sunday through Aug. 13. Free. Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theater, 2206 William Barton Drive. 512-479-9491, zilker.org/shrek-the-musical.
