Be a part of the community in Community Theater!

Dear Friend of MTA,
We want to say THANK YOU for your support of the Monticello Theatre Association. With the help of your support, the MTA made it through a difficult year deprived of live theater, and we’re ready to get back on that stage! Even though we weren’t able to produce very many live productions for you last year, we were still able to keep theater alive in our community!
  • We maintained our innovative collaboration in 2020 with MHS Thespians in a student-directed production: The Incomplete Life & Untimely Death of Molly Denholtz.
  • We improved our social media outreach. Find us on Facebook (Monticello Theatre Association) and Instagram (@monticellotheaterassoc) to check out our content, including weekly trivia about past shows.
  • MTA’s 8 award winning short comedies were shared on social media with our online community.
  • We elected our 2021 board of officers to continue planning for theater post-COVID! 
Our membership capital was invested in:
  • Ongoing collaboration with the MHS Thespians! Our high school students got to cast, direct, stage and star in their own production furnished and produced by the Monticello Theatre Association. We are excited to grow this collaboration.
  • Scholarships to graduating MHS seniors.
  • Building maintenance
In 2021, MTA will continue to educate youth and adults alike and develop new directors, actors, crew, and audience members. Contact us to get involved or volunteer! Find us online at
