The Muny has announced that it will open at full capacity for its 103rd season this summer in Forest Park.
The outdoor theater said last month that audience capacity would be reduced to about 60%, but those restrictions were lifted with the support of the St. Louis Health Department, the Muny said. The change will allow the venue to fill each of its nearly 11,000 seats, including the 1,500 free seats available nightly on a first-come, first-served basis.
The condensed season includes “Smokey Joe’s Café” (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) and “Chicago” (Aug. 30-Sept. 5).

Two musicals that had been scheduled for the 2021 season, “Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins” and “Sweeney Todd,” are postponed until 2022.
Last year, because of the pandemic, the Muny was forced to postpone its full season for the first time in its history, instead presenting online broadcasts of its earlier “Muny Magic at the Sheldon” shows, as well as a popular livestream series, “The Muny 2020 Summer Variety Hour Live!”
Masks are not required for fully vaccinated patrons. Previously announced safety guidelines, with the exception of social distancing, will remain in place.
New subscriptions for the five-show season will go on sale Monday; June 7 single tickets are on sale July 12. For more information, call 314-361-1900 or visit muny.org.
