Marshalltown Community Theatre

Bringing Quality Theater to the Heart of Iowa!

As we gear up for our 55th season, the board is “changing things up a bit” over the next  year.  We will be producing three regular season shows AND hosting Iowa’s 2017 AACT (American Association of Community Theatres) annual festival.  It’s a four day event where you will get to see the best of Iowa’s community theaters come to our stage to perform.  They’ll be food and fun and a big party too.  We can’t wait for you to attend!  

As you may know, in order to survive and thrive, MCT depends on donations from our sponsors and patrons.  Our theater must cover “fixed expenses” (rent, insurance, utilities, etc.) and “variable  expenses” (costs associated with each show like sets, props, costumes, royalties, advertising, books/music, etc.).  Using donations and income from ticket sales, each show must cover its fixed and variable expenses, and then any extra income is used for new purchases and repairs.  As with everything, costs continue to climb and we are planning for needed updates to our sound and light-ing systems.  We love our beautiful theater, but it is in need of some updating and repairs too.

We are extremely excited about what our future may hold and we hope you are too… so we are calling on you.  We need your help to ensure our lights shine brightly into our next season and  beyond.  Please consider a one-time donation and/or consider becoming an on-going MCT “FRIEND OF MCT” donor.  You can make monthly donations in any amount, beginning as low as $10.  Just fill out a donation form (click on the link below) and mail it to us. 

Along with the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing your part to support the Arts in our com-munity, you will also receive name recognition in our season playbill all season long!  MCT is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt at the end of the year for tax purposes. 

Designed to inspire the imagination, The Marshalltown Community Theatre exists to bring quality, live theatrical productions to our community.  

We invite you to be a part of it all… consider a donation today!
