MCCTA is always looking for ways to give back to the community whether it's by donating part of it's proceeds from shows to non-profit organizations, or by holding special events.
For every Children's Theatre production, we invite schools to come see our show for free. Before the Saturday matinee show, we hold a luncheon, where parents can make reservations for their kids to come do activities and enjoy lunch with some of the characters from the show too.
The Vagina Monologues
In February, we perform The Vagina Monologues to raise awareness for abused women around the world. The performances are always donation based and all profits go to a nonprofit dedicated to helping women. In the past, we have worked closely with Family Services, which has several programs that assist battered women in leading healthy and strong lives.
Profits from our 2011 Experimental Theatre Show, Dog Sees God, went to The Trevor Project, which is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth. More information on this organization can be found here.
Proceeds from our 2012 mainstage, Bill C. Davis' original play, Spine, went to the Thomas Peterpaul Foundation, which is a non-profit organization devoted to raising funds for pediatric cancer research and to improve the quality of life for patients & their families. More information on this organization can be found here.
Part of the profits from our 2012 Children's Theatre show, Thumbelina, went to the memorial fund for the three Marist students, Kerry, Eva, and Kevin, whose lives were lost in the fire January of 2012.
