20 Nov 2013
Performance dates have been announced for the 2014 summer season at the St. Louis The Muny, the country's largest outdoor theatre.
As previously reported, the upcoming season will feature seven musicals, four of which are Muny premieres.
The season will kick off with Billy Elliot The Musical, a Muny premiere that will run June 16-22. It will be followed by Tarzan (June 25-July 2), The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (July 7-13), The Addams Family (July 14-20), Seussical the Musical (July 22-28), Grease (July 31-Aug. 8) and Hello, Dolly! (Aug. 11-17)
“With the exciting work that happened on stage last summer, along with the addition of the new state-of-the-art fans, the 2013 season was a true audience pleaser,” said Muny president and CEO Denny Reagan in a previous statement. “In order to continue this excitement in 2014, we have chosen a line-up of shows that comes directly from the Muny survey, and brings a good mix of styles and stories to the Muny stage.”
Season ticket holders will receive their renewal notices the first week of December. New season tickets will be available beginning March 8, 2014, at the Muny box office in Forest Park, with single tickets going on sale May 31, 2014.
