About Musical Theatre of Anthem
Musical Theatre of Anthem is an award-winning, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 2008 by Jackie and Jeff Hammond.
The mission of Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) is to develop youth and adults within the field of performing arts while enhancing their intrinsic creativity and brokering their vast talents. MTA trains and educates youth so they can become the artists, patrons, and leaders of tomorrow while providing opportunities to adults to empower them and foster their creativity.
At MTA, we cast all youth who audition because we believe that every child deserves a chance to shine on stage while learning and growing as a performing artist. Participants are trained in all aspects of the performing arts including Vocal, Dance, Acting, Improv, Pantomime, Props, Sets, and more. We only hire the best Directors, Vocal and Music Directors, Choreographer, and Production Assistants because we want to bring the performers a first-rate, professional experience. The Production Staff members are experts in their respective fields, and have countless years of professional performing and teaching experience on Broadway, in Tours, and Worldwide.
MTA is guided by key principles such as casting all youth who audition, setting and achieving high artistic standards, offering moments for performers of all abilities to shine, and providing a positive and family-friendly atmosphere where we instill the belief that working hard and giving your best will produce the greatest results and satisfaction. Performers will learn the benefits of discipline, teamwork, and dedication.
