THE MUNY ENDOWMENT – LOOKING TOWARD OUR SECOND CENTURY
Part of the reason The Muny has been around for nearly a century is that fiscal responsibility is equally as important to us as presenting the very best musical theatre possible. We realize that the rising costs of producing shows could soon get in the way of other important goals: keeping tickets reasonably priced and offering free admission each night to 1,500 audience members in the Free Seats. To balance our artistic standards with our desire to remain fiscally healthy, we have established The Muny Endowment. We hope you will make an investment in The Muny’s future with a gift to The Muny Endowment.
