Theatre isn't just something you watch--it's something you do.

For the Love of Theatre For the Joy of a Lifetime

When we’re not putting on a summer of shows, we’re hard at work inspiring the next generation of performers, producers and creators.

Our Education Programs

The Muny Kids + The Muny Teens

The Muny’s flagship education program, these performing troupes serve as goodwill ambassadors to the people of St. Louis and surrounding region.

Muny in Schools

This program offers tailor-made classes, as well as production assistance to St. Louis area schools for their annual or theatre club productions.

Education Classes

Students can further their training through engagement with theatre professionals in offerings like our Audition Workshop, BFA Bootcamp, Musical Theatre Dance classes and more!

Technical Theatre Training (T3)

This program provides training and mentorship to high schoolers in the industry of technical theatre helping to create a clear path for success post graduation.


High school theatre classes across the nation can participate in virtual discussions with acclaimed theatre professionals about their theatre experience and expertise.

The Muny/Webster Intensive

Our three-week summer intensive program invites rising high school juniors and seniors to St. Louis each summer for an immersive theatrical experience.


We offer internships in almost all of our departments in the creation of seven full scale musical theatre productions in 10 weeks.

Music Direction (MD) Outreach Program

Local musicians of color with advanced piano skills and expertise can learn directly from our talented team of musical directors to prepare them for and integrate them into the musical theatre profession.

St. Louis High School Musical Theatre Awards (SLHSMTA)

with The Fabulous Fox and Fox Charitable Foundation

This year-long adjudication of high school musical theatre productions, culminates in an awards ceremony modeled on the Tony Awards.

Our education programs have something for everyone—from stage builders to sound designers to ensemble performers.

Programs at The Muny teach students that the theatre is a great place to find a hobby or make a living. The skills and discipline they learn while participating in a Muny education program will serve them well in whatever career they pursue.

Through the generous support of the Crawford Taylor Foundation, The Muny has developed new arts education opportunities, and strengthened our existing programs, enabling us to improve overall programing under a single cohesive framework.
