What can Muny audiences expect in 2017? Look for at least two Muny premieres, some very popular vintage shows and one show that for many Muny patrons will be a very pleasant, if unexpected, surprise. Also, some of the shows will have more than 7 performances.

The 2017 season will be announced in November, if not sooner.
