The Mississippi Theatre Association is composed of six divisions targeting distinct groups. Each division sponsors festivals, workshops, and retreats; recognizes excellence in performance and production; advises theatre leaders and educators; shares information on upcoming productions; and advocates to government agencies, business, and the public.
MTA’s annual statewide festival brings Mississippi’s best theatre to local communities. Join us for a spectacular weekend of dynamic workshops and amazing performances.
The Mississippi Theatre Association seeks to recognize those theatres and individuals that represent exemplary service to the organization and to theatre in Mississippi.
MTA awards a scholarship during the MTA Festival to a deserving high-school senior who intends to pursue a degree in theatre at a Mississippi college or university.
