The Millennial Theatre Company, an official 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization founded in 2016, works to bridge the gap between youth and adult community theater opportunities for young adults ages 18-35 (Millennials). The organization aims to create theatrical experiences that speak to both actors and audiences of the Millennial generation, although all generations will appreciate the generation-relevant content that the organization seeks to provide
The company has recently found its new home at the newly restored Robins Theatre in Warren, Ohio and has just launched their 2020 season. The company's next season will consist of Shrek the Musical, Heathers the Musical (5 year anniversary show), a yet-to-be-released Summer Musical, The Rocky Horror Show, and Hairspray.
The goal of this campaign is to secure funds to offset expenses for a rehearsal/storage space for the company, due to the theatre being used all year long for other performances.
How Your Donation Can Help Many members of the Millennial Generation have found a difficult time getting involved in theatrical leadership roles, most of which are almost always exclusively reserved for older members of the community. The Millennial Theatre Company seeks to provide an outlet for Millennials to take on these leadership roles, while also providing audiences with theatrical experiences that reflect and speak to the generation's experiences, interests, and values. This can be evidenced in the company's mission statement; "Producing quality theatrical experiences with, for, and of a generation".
The Millennial Theatre Company is also hoping to extend its reach beyond the traditional staging of a musical. The company also hosts educational workshops, geared towards the Millennial Generation, to help prepare actors for the stage. Although programming is designed with Millennials in mind, individuals of all ages are welcome and encouraged to attend all Millennial Theatre Company events. The company is also working with young artists to produce locally written work, written exclusively by members of the Millennial Generation.
By having our own rehearsal space, we will be able to get many members of the Millennial Generation involved. We currently jump from spaces in Girard and Poland, but would like to have a consistent space that we can build sets, rehearse, and develop MTC year-round.
