Every day, The Musical Theater Project works passionately to open the hearts and minds of our audiences to the power of musical theater. We create programs that inspire and—whether on stage, in schools or on the radio—bring each person closer to this unique American art form. And it’s the generous hearts of donors in our musical theater memberships that make our one-of-a-kind programs sing!
As a TMTP Contributing Member of our Applause, Applause Annual Campaign, you will:
- Inspire joy in schoolchildren across northeast Ohio, motivating them to sing, dance and act with our teaching artists in the classroom.
- Lift the spirits, hearts and minds of audience members at our Song Is You! concert performances and listeners to our Footlight Parade radio broadcasts and Harbinger recordings.
- Preserve and celebrate the work of iconic musical theater songwriters so that future generations have access to the deep, rich history of the art form.
Support These Programs by Becoming Part of Our Musical Theater Membership
We are dedicated to celebrating, preserving and honoring the classic American musical of the 20th century. With cultural history playing a major role in our musicals, we are able to foster a deep connection and appreciation for both, creating an ultimate experience.
By supporting us and joining our musical theater membership, you’ll be able to help us bring these programs to life:
- Concerts – Hosted by our music nonprofit, our concerts explore the historical and cultural impact of musical theater. Often referred to as “docu-concerts,” they provide a unique combination of a live performance, still images, and video clips.
- Harbinger Records – Founded in 1983, this is a subsidiary of The Musical Theater Project focused on creating albums for the collector dedicated to the Great American Songbook.
- Radio programs – We are happy to broadcast a weekly program on over 100 stations, and we reach both national and international listeners. You won’t want to miss this TMTP offering.
- Kids Love Musicals! – This immersive and educational experience helps us connect with local youth in the classroom! We empower students and encourage them to apply their creativity while they learn about the historical and cultural impact of musical theater. By donating annually through our musical theater membership, you’re creating a safe space for students and giving them a platform to share their thoughts!
- Let’s Go to the Movies… at Home! – Take a deeper look at a movie musical each month and break down the impact of the performance over a live Zoom discussion! As a subscriber, you are given access to each monthly film and subsequent discussion.
