What We Do
Music Theatre of Connecticut is the premier provider of musical theatre performance and training. Founded in 1987, we produce an annual series of Equity productions featuring New York professionals (MTC MainStage), five annual student productions (MainStage Kids), and a conservatory-style school of performing arts with curriculum-based training for students ages four through high school, including the nationally-recognized College-Bound in the Performing Arts program for performance career-focused high school students.
Why It’s Important
The unique synergy between our professionals and students not only fosters an atmosphere where both can achieve their full artistic and creative potential in a nurturing, non-competitive environment; but also endows students with the vital life skills of mutual respect, self-confidence, problem solving, socialization, and collaboration which provide fundamentals of success in all professional and personal life paths. Our educational focus is on each student’s individual growth and development through sequential training, multiple performance opportunities, and mentoring by our full-time professional faculty and MainStage Artists-in-residence; so that continuity of a vibrant legacy of the art and craft of musical performance is ensured for ensuing generations.
