   "Remarkable." That's what the Muny's executive producer Mike Isaacson had to say about attendance this season. It was up 9% over last yea, well over the 5% boost Muny executives had hped for, according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

   Including free tickets and community outreach, a total of over 383,000 people took in a show this year. That is the highest number in six years.

   The most popular shows, Mary Poppins and Shrek. It was the first appearance at the Muny for both of the family-friendly shows.

   And the Muny Opera isn't the only entertainment venue in Forest Park that's celebrating its popularity.  The St. Louis Zoo has broken another record.

   Officials say the zoo has nearly 53,000 members as of July 31. That is an 11% increase of the same time last year and represents a 20% increase over the past five years.

   The zoo was also happy to announce that they have 1,000 members who paid at least $1,000.

Actor John O’Hurley will star in tonight's first show of the Muny's 95th Season featuring Monty Python’s Spamalot. John is best known as “J. Peterman” on Seinfeld.

 When the curtain goes up on the 2013 season at 8:15 each night, theatre-goers will be treated to something new...cooler, quieter fans that were installed during the off-season. 

The Muny's seven-show season runs through mid-August and like last year patrons can take the Muny Trolley between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and The Muny, They are offered on 20-minute intervals from 7:22 p.m. to 8:02 pm. before the show and for two trips or more if necessary, to the station after the performance ends. The cost is $2 for adults and $1 for children ages 5 to 12.

During the day, the #3 Forest Park Trolley conveniently connects area residents and tourists to all of the Forest Park attractions and the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station.

Visitors don’t have to worry about driving in traffic congestion in the park, finding parking or moving their cars as they enjoy more than one attraction in the park by hopping on and off the Trolley. The #3 Forest Park Trolley conveniently drops off and picks up passengers at the front door of the park attractions. 

Customers purchase tickets aboard the Trolley bus and the ticket is valid for unlimited rides on a single day on this #3 Forest Park Trolley route only.
