Summer in St. Louis means the Muny scene comes alive. The theater kicked off its 104th season Monday with “Chicago: The Musical” on a record-breaking 100-degree day. But, the Forest Park favorite is doing several things to keep fans and performers safe.

If you’ve been to a show in the past few years, you’ll notice big fans go there all night long. The cast also has water, fans, and air conditioning backstage, and they rehearsed in the heat, so they’re ready.

Can I bring my own water?

Yes. Outside food and drinks are allowed at the Muny. You can also pack a soft-sided cooler, but it should fit under your seat.

Hard coolers, outside alcohol, aluminum cans and lawn chairs are only allowed in the picnic area before the show. These cannot enter the theater, according to The Muny’s website.
