Free Musical Theater! The Muny in Forest Park

Posted on: July 14, 2010

Thanks to Jennifer for helping me choose what next St. Louis deal to highlight…

Nestled in wonderful Forest Park, the home of the 1904 World’s Fair, is an outdoor Municipal Theater popular with St. Louisans. Each summer there is a full slate of musicals that can be enjoyed under the stars, with natural heat provided. Check out the Muny home page here to see what’s planned for the rest of the summer, and be sure to check here for information on free seats for every performance!

Yes, that’s right! The Muny has over 1500 free seats for every performance! Some things to consider before you go:

  • Check the Muny’s website for information pertaining to your visit.
  • The free seat gates open at 7pm before each show, but arrive at least an hour before that to get in line.
  • Seriously consider taking or renting binoculars. There’s a reason the free seats are free. However, if you are fine listening and seeing from a distance, then don’t worry. I’ve never used binoculars…but wished I could have!
  • Soft-sided coolers that fit under the seats are allowed…see all the restrictions here.
  • Performances begin nightly at 8:15.
  • Free street parking is available in Forest Park, but you might end up having to walk a ways.

We are hoping to get to Sound of Music July 26-August 1 sometime, and take our three-year-old with us for the first time. Since the seats are free, it won’t be a big deal if (when!) we need to leave early. That’s always a bonus.
