PRESS AND KUDOS
Music Theatre of Madison strives to challenge, educate and enrich by performing lesser known pieces that illustrate unique issues, ideas and subject matter. In addition, it strives to provide a quality professional outlet for artists, particularly those who are residents of Madison and the surrounding areas.
MTM was founded by Meghan Randolph in September of 2005 with the goal of creating a professional musical theatre company that could present the musicals that make audiences think, research and reflect.
In an effort to compete in an extremely active theatrical market, MTM created a niche for itself by focusing primarily on lesser known musicals, while still looking for thought provoking subject matter.
What does professional mean in this case? In the theatre world, it has several definitions. To us, it means we make the commitment to share our income with our artists, without whom none of what we do would be possible. We are focused on opportunities for artists who are beginning professional careers, those who would like an opportunity to work with a professionally experienced creative team, and those who formerly had careers but moved to Madison for personal reasons. The opportunity for these types of people to perform is here. We would love to pay more, and are confident that as we grow we'll be able to. Who knows what the future holds?
As the fairly new art form of musical theatre progresses, we learn that it has very few boundaries. When done well, a musical can touch hearts and open minds with its blend of great acting, strong writing, beautiful music, and all of the other elements of an excellent theatrical production. MTM strives for that excellence at all times.
