Another summer in St. Louis means another summer at the Muny in Forest Park! This is the 10th year I have had season tickets. I started out going with my aunt and grandma. Now it has grown into an even bigger tradition, and my mom and cousin come along as well. It’s a fun thing for the ladies in the family to do together. I have always had a fondness of live theatre, so the Muny season is something I look forward to every summer. Whether it is a show I have seen several times or one I know nothing about, I enjoy going to all of them. The summer 2014 lineup is as follows.
Porgy and Bess
The Addams Family
I’m glad that this year brings back Grease, one of my personal favorites. But also, there are a few shows that I have never seen on stage before (and I’ve seen a lot of shows). If you’re interested in going, you can typically buy tickets the day of. Or, get there early and snag some free seats in the back! Despite some nights being extremely hot, my time at the Muny is always cherished.
If you are ever looking for somewhere to go during the summer on a nice day. I would recommend Forest Park. Forest Park is located around the corner from Fontbonne, just past Skinker Blvd. There’s the Zoo, Art Museum, History Museum and so much more. The best thing about it is that everything is free! It is a great place to hang out with the family, a group of friends, or go as a couple. You can also get in shape by using Forest Park’s track. You can run, jog, or even bike ride. If you are ever looking for somewhere to take the family or have a nice day out, this is surely the place to go! A trip to Forest Park can turn your boring day upside down!
That is where you will see me on June 26th. My friend told me about the concert two days ago. I instantly bought tickets. Neon Trees is one of my favorite bands and it was only $10. Since I missed them at Pointfest, I wasn’t going to miss them again! Their current tour is for their pop psychology album, which is AMAZING. Ever since I bought the ticket I have been listening to them non-stop again. This will be my second time seeing Neon Trees in STL. The first time was at UMSL in 2012. Its due to see them again!
This will be at 21+ show so there will be no pesky teenagers there at all, which will be great and not annoying. Pictures are to follow!
Summer classes started at Fontbonne this week. It has been a little rough, since all I want to do is sleep. I have a practicum in the Advancement office working on PR and advertising for SAA. Which I love; I am having so much fun with it. The downer is my Tuesday/Thursday class. 8am-10:30am spreadsheets aka excel. How boring is that, so early in the morning. It will be an easy A so that’s okay.
Also, during the summer I am continuing to work for the Griffin Roar aka the Fontbanner. I really enjoy it since I like to write. If anyone is interested in writing for it email me with questions: email@example.com. I can give you information if you would like to write for the summer and/or if you would like to sign up for the class in the fall. We always need writers. The more content we have, the better!
