The Glass Menagerie, Tennessee Williams’ first major play to appear on Broadway, is an autobiographical work.

In this hilarious, fast-paced comedy, the inhabitants of one of the smallest trailer parks in Texas—four doublewides and a shed—are thrown for a loop when they realize the nearby town of Tugaloo is determined to annex them. And it’s not as if they don’t already have enough to deal with. 
Kid's Workshops
Kid's Workshops
Does your child have an interest in drama and the arts? Did he really enjoy being part of the school pageant? Does she get excited about performing in skits at church? Monticello Theatre Association is interested in helping your child explore their creative side during the MTA Children's Summer Workshop.
The MTA hosts two Children's Summer Workshops. Each workshop concludes with a final performance delivered by workshop participants.

L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz Jr.
This is your opportunity to be transported to place where the formidable gloom of the Wicked Witch of the West is drowned by the overwhelming joy of the Munchkins and Ozians! You have never been to a Wizard of Oz experience like this one, with sprinkles of Western classical music and picturesque flags that unexpectedly draw the audience right into the middle of the action with each arrival into a new imaginary land. Of course, we hope that you’ll sing along with Dorothy and all of her chums as they make their way to the Yellow Brick Road; just make sure you’re on your best behavior as the Winkie Guards will be patrolling the aisles!

Barbara Robinson's The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world–so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There’s not supposed to be biting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites! Soon everyone is calling for reluctant director Grace Bradley to cancel the whole thing. It’s up to Bradley and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic.
