When she was 10 years old, Hannah Roberts stepped onto the stage at the Zilker Hillside Theater and looked out into the crowd. The native Austinite didn’t really know what a musical was when her mom suggested she audition for the part of Amaryllis in “The Music Man,” but after a summer of playing her, Roberts was certain: The stage was where she was meant to be.

Zilker Theatre Productions’ free summer musical, “The Wizard of Oz,” runs Thursdays-Sundays through Aug. 12 at the Beverly S. Sheffield Zilker Hillside Theatre, 2206 William Barton Drive. The show starts at 8:15 p.m. Visit for details.
