Grizzly bears are off exhibit this week, through April 20.

The Water Play Park is now open for the season! It is open daily when the ambient temperature is above 70 degrees.

Gorillas are coming back to the Zoo in 2015. Please pardon our mess in the African Forest as we prepare for their arrival.

TXU Energy Presents Cool Nights: Country Western

July 19, 2013 - 5:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Join us for a boot-stompin’ good time! On this night we’ll have games and activities with a country western theme, like horseshoes and stick horse races. Plus, Zoo guests can stomp their feet to the music of country band Eleven Hundred Springs! They’ll be performing at 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The games, the concert, and all Cool Nights activities are included in your Zoo Admission.

After Cool Nights, walk to Miller Outdoor Theatre and see Theatre Under The Stars’ 8:15 p.m. performance of A Chorus Line running July 16 – 21.

About Eleven Hundred Springs:
“Listening to any effort from Eleven Hundred Springs, including latest Midway, is like having your cool uncle pull out his favorite albums. Matt Hillyer and crew have that old-school country sound down. When the band started up way back in 1998, some folks thought it was just guys imitating the sounds of Merle Haggard, George Jones and Hank Williams, but over the course of nine albums, Eleven Hundred Springs have evolved into a tight unit of true believers.”

About A Chorus Line:
In an empty theatre, on a bare stage, casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete. For 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime. It’s what they’ve worked for – with every drop of sweat, every hour of training, every day of their lives. It’s the one opportunity to do what they’ve always dreamed – to have the chance to dance. Theatre Under The Stars will present A Chorus Line, the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. Winner of nine Tony Awards, including “Best Musical” and the Pulitzer Prize for drama, the singular sensation returns to the Miller Outdoor Theatre stage for TUTS’ annual free summer musical.
