Welcome to Music Theatre of Madison!
We are Madison's home for the new and different in musical theatre. Come to us for your fix of unique, provocative, professional, accessible, unusual, locally-created musicals that will keep you pondering well after you leave your seat. Learn more about our mission and history here.
Music Theatre of Madison acknowledges the history of bigotry and oppression in the theatre industry and works to counteract these wrongs through amplification of marginalized voices, elimination of prejudicial practices, and development of a brave space that is safe from all types of harm.
Music Theatre of Madison performs and works on the ancestral land called Teejop (Four Lakes) of the Ho-Chunk Nation (People of the Sacred Voice). They were forcibly removed from this stolen land many times and continued to return despite the danger. Their songs and stories tell of their proud history being here for more than three ice ages. MTM respects the sovereignty of the First Nations in Wisconsin. We acknowledge and celebrate the thriving Indigenous peoples of our community -- those who were here, those who are here, and those who will be here -- as we continue to bring new ideas and new artistic works to Madison's cultural landscape.
These are living statements that acknowledge our part in achieving justice as a full society. We gratefully accept feedback from our community, and also engage in research and reflection, individually and as a company, on how to be the most equitable organization possible. Our work is ongoing and placed alongside our mission statement as being of the utmost importance to our greater purpose.
