Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park is preparing for its 100th season. The Miller Theatre Advisory Board announced it will honor the anniversary through eight months of festivities, per a Feb. 13 press release.

The theatre is funded in part by the city of Houston and the Houston Arts Alliance. The advisory board has also started a $12.5 million capital campaign to fundraise for improvements and renovations to the century-old theatre. This funding will go toward updating the theatre's fixed and hillside seating as well as a new entryway.

“Everyone has a special memory from a Miller visit,” Miller's Managing Director Cissy Segall Davis said in a statement.
