Our Commitment to Anti-Racism

The Musical Theater Project declares and affirms our commitment to anti-racist action. We stand firmly with those who call for justice and work tirelessly to end systemic racism both here at home in Northeast Ohio and throughout the far reaches of our country and beyond. We acknowledge that our own institution’s history is inextricably linked to an industry-wide ethos of fear resulting from racism and its intersecting oppressions.

To that end, Bill Rudman, Founding Artistic Director, and Jack Warren, Managing Director, pledge to take meaningful action on an inclusive, shame-free anti-racist agenda to be created collaboratively among staff, trustees and fellow industry creatives as we strive to become better examples of the change we want to see in the world.

TMTP Welcomes A New Board President

In June the Board of Trustees of The Musical Theater Project elected Marilyn (Mebby) Brown as the ninth president in the organization’s 24-year history. The announcement was made by then-President Janet Kramer.

Janet commented: “Mebby is a caring individual who gives generously of herself, has a good understanding of people and enjoys having fun. She will be very supportive of TMTP and will carry it forward during these difficult times.”

TMTP has returned to the stage, and we’re delighted many of you are back, too! But, like all of you, we have suffered the economic blows the pandemic has dealt. For more than two years TMTP has not been able to produce the masterful works we’re used to seeing from Bill Rudman and Nancy Maier. For two years Kids Love Musicals! has been on hiatus from the classrooms. Thus our ability to raise funds has been compromised. Admittedly, this year, our first year back in production with Song Is You! concerts, Rendezvous, Optimistic Voices, and For Good, we remain in a deficit position.

​​Our illustrious and creative Board of Trustees has established a short-term fund we’re calling “Matchmaker, Matchmaker”. The Board is committing this fund to matching all of your donations between now and June 30, 2022–DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR–up to the first $50,000 we receive from the public, (our glorious fans and our fabulous friends.)
