What We Do
When: Every Summer
Summer stock theatre, distant kin to the medicine shows of the 1800s and P.T. Barnum’s Traveling Circus, finds its origin at The Muny in St. Louis, MO. Since its birth summer stock theatre has served the dual purpose of providing a training ground for young performers and quality entertainment for the locals of rural towns to enjoy during the summer season. We present one show each summer to inspire, enlighten, and educate our community.
