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!

Thank you for your interest in our Preshow Festival. To help mitigate the volume of patrons during ingress, there will be no Preshow Festival on Lichtenstein Plaza, located directly behind the Free Seats, for the 2021 season. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, there will still be Preshow Festival performances on both east and west lawns every night there is a mainstage production.

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.
