Muny free seats: Family tradition
As part of its founding charter, The Muny has more than 1,500 free seats that are always available to the public on a first come, first served basis. Free seat hopefulls line up as early as 1:30 in the afternoon to secure a seat for the 8:15 evening performances. Chairs, umbrellas, picnics, blankets, games and music make waiting in line an experience of its own -- one that some St. Louis families have participated in for decades and some St. Lousans are just discovering.
