Annual Miller Productions

Since 1987, HITS Theatre has partnered with Miller Outdoor Theatre and the City of Houston to present a Broadway-style musical theatre production to Houstonians and visitors, free of charge.

Each year, HITS Theatre brings together a broad, diverse audience of over 20,000 Houstonians at six free-to-the-public performances at one of the finest outdoor theatre venues in the country: Miller Outdoor Theatre. We provide a talented cast of students; Miller provides invaluable support, a first-class facility and a picturesque venue. Together, we deliver a professional-caliber event accessible to all Houstonians and community visitors. It’s a beautiful partnership that offers our students the unique opportunity to perform in a full-scale theatrical production in front of a large audience.
