Our Community Theatre Project (MCTP) is dedicated to preserving a quality community theatre experience. In the past seven years we have produced ten main stage theatrical productions for the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area, including several PAMTA and DRAMMY nominations. Each of these productions have enriched the community by exposing new generations to live musical theatre productions including The Fantasticks, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Chicago, Rent, Little Women, Annie, Gypsy, Meet Me in St. Louis, and Les Misérables. As a community organization we are reaching out to you, the community that we serve, to partner with us to keep community theatre alive and well in the Pacific Northwest.

Up Next: Metropolitan Community Theater Project is partnering with The Kiggins Theatre and Washington State University Creative Media & Digital Culture to create 5 Re-Imagined Radio productions per year. On December 20th, 2017 we will be doing "A Christmas Carol." To be part of a live radio show, submit a resume and voice real to Barbara Richardson at email@example.com What is Re-Imagined Radio? Start with a 1936 theatre. Re-enact historic radio dramas complete with voice actors and Foley sound artists. Garnish with digital SFX, music, and visual backdrops. Overlay student digital interpretations of the base narrative. Invite a live audience to watch, eat popcorn, and participate via social media. The result: Re-Imagined Radio—storytelling as never before heard, or seen.
