Muny Construction Remains on Schedule for 2019 Season

The Muny announced today updates regarding its multi-million-dollar stage renovation. After several weeks, demolition of the existing stage area is now complete; all that remains are the scenery booms, which will be upgraded for the theatre’s second century.

Phase 1 of this two-year project includes: rebuilding the stage, orchestra pit, light bridge and stage towers which will be completed for the 2019 season. Phase 2, the the reforesting of the stage and the addition of decorative shells, will be complete prior to the 2020 season.

With Tarlton Corporation as the construction manager, and crews working double shifts, construction remains on schedule.

“We’re off to a great start,” said Muny Director of Operations Sean Smith. “This is an ambitious project, but we’ve been working with the team at Tarlton to make sure that we stay on track and are ready for the 2019 season. We can’t wait to see everyone then!”
