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), numerous annual student productions, 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.

Since 1987, Music Theatre of Connecticut’s professional Equity acting company, MTC MainStage, has been bringing critically-acclaimed theatre to Fairfield County. MTC MainStage features Broadway performers and has a reputation for top quality as well as innovation. Past productions include Yours, Anne (Connecticut Critics’ Circle Award Nominee), A Little Night Music, Baby, Babes in Toyland and Prime Time Prophet (at MTC prior to a successful Off-Broadway run). In 2008, MTC MainStage’s production of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play won a prestigious Moss Hart Award in the professional division from the New England Theatre Conference. MTC MainStage productions are presented in its beautifully designed 108-seat black box theatre on the Westport/Norwalk border––a space that provides the most unique and intimate professional theatrical experience in Connecticut. Audiences no longer need to go to New York to see Broadway talent! MTC MainStage is committed to the resurgence of “homegrown professional theatre” in Fairfield County where audiences see first-class Broadway performers “up close and personal” on the MTC MainStage Studio Theatre stage.
