An Urgent Message From Our President

Dear MTS Family,

In order to produce a show at MTS it takes approximately 125 volunteers working tens of thousands of hours. A single show’s budget can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $45,000.

Our amazing all volunteer run theatre manages to produce quality productions.  Read more →
