With the support of the City of St. Louis Health Department, The Muny announced today that the previously shared reduced capacity restrictions have been lifted for its 103rd season. The outdoor theatre will open at full capacity, utilizing each of its nearly 11,000 seats, including the 1,500 free seats offered nightly on a first come, first served basis.
The 2021 season lineup includes:
- Smokey Joe’s Cafe | July 26 – Aug. 1
- The Sound of Music | Aug. 3 – 9
- Seven Brides for Seven Brothers | Aug. 12 – 18
- On Your Feet! | Aug. 21 – 27
- Chicago | Aug. 30 – Sept. 5
The two shows originally slated for the seven-show lineup that will move into the 2022 season are Sweeney Todd and Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins.
Current season ticket holders for the 2021 season will receive their season tickets later this month. New season subscriptions for the 2021 five-show season will be available beginning June 7, with single tickets becoming available July 12. Tickets can be purchased online at muny.org or by phone by calling (314) 361-1900 ext 1550. Currently, the box office in Forest Park is closed for walk-up service until July 5.
The previously announced sanitation guidelines, with the exception of social distancing, for The Muny’s 103rd season remain in place.
Muny Sanitation Guidelines
Fully vaccinated patrons are not required to wear masks at The Muny. Patrons who are not yet fully vaccinated are strongly encouraged to wear masks at all times on campus, unless actively eating or drinking.
For the safety of our patrons and our employees, our event staff will wear masks.
Concession stands, kiosks and other retail transactions made on The Muny campus will be cashless and only offer credit, debit or Muny gift card payment options.
The Muny campus has deployed new, state-of-the-art metal detection scanners. These new devices will allow a continuous stream of physically-distanced patrons to pass through security checkpoints without the delays typically associated with bag checks and handheld metal detection devices (or “wands”).
For patron convenience, hand sanitizer dispensers will be widely available throughout the Muny campus.
Patron Communication, Online and On Campus
All Muny Patron Policies and Sanitation Guidelines will be available on The Muny website. Policies will also be communicated in preshow emails to patrons. Campus signage will be located at entrances and throughout public spaces to encourage proper hand sanitation, face covering policies (when necessary) and safety guidelines.
To stay connected virtually and to receive the latest updates, please follow The Muny on their social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
