Preshow Festival

A Show Before The Show!

The Preshow Festival is a free celebration of our community and the performing arts. With live performances, musical guests and kids activities — you’ll always want to get here early!

The Preshow Festival Runs From 6:45 – 8:00 p.m. every show night

Each summer, The Muny welcomes more than 100 community organizations, theatre troupes and musical acts for preshow entertainment. What better way to kick off your night at the theatre than by supporting St. Louis’ bustling arts scene? So pack a blanket, grab a bite and find a grassy spot to take in the night’s festivities.

Contact Susie Joffe, Promotions & Preshow Manager, at (314) 595-5755 or [email protected].
