The Community Theatre Chairs and the Executive Director are here to assist you and your theatre.  Please let us know if you have questions regarding running your community theatre.

In addition to hosting the statewide community theatre festival we also host a workshop geared toward community theatres.  The workshop focuses on the needs of community theatres in our State. If you have suggestions for workshops – be sure to let us know.

Community Theatre Festival Rules Any theatre that wants to compete at the MTA Festival must be registered as a community theatre. See the rules and guidelines for more information or contact our festival chairs.
