Your donation to MJTC will support a professional theater that is unique to the Twin Cities, state of Minnesota, and the region. Nationally respected for work that has garnered 5 Ivey Awards as well as the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council Arts Achievement Award, the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company is a small professional theater that provides experiences that the youngest child through the oldest adult can enjoy. We produce outstanding plays while exploring Jewish culture and contemporary issues that are universal to people of all backgrounds. Comedy, drama, holidays shows, and musicals entertain and educate by highlighting the universality of our experiences and promoting tolerance in our world. Our general audiences are almost equally Jewish and non-Jewish. Our school groups are highly diverse and reflect the Minnesota community.
Your donation to MJTC will support the four programming arms that make the work of our mission possible:
- Mainstage Productions - Our season of plays is composed of summer, fall, winter, and spring offerings, including a holiday show that is geared for the youngest theatergoers and which also provides the only professional show about Chanukah for families and school groups in the region.
- Doorways - Doorways is our initiative of ongoing programs such as community forums, post-show symposia, panel discussions, written communications, and work with schoolchildren, all designed to open the doors to greater understanding and enjoyment of the plays MJTC presents and to deeper insights into the subjects and issues they address.
- Wellsprings - Wellsprings is MJTC's initiative to develop new plays rooted in the Jewish experience that also illuminate our common ground.
- Ticket Subsidy Program - The goal of our Ticket Subsidy Program is to insure that all children may experience, learn from, and enjoy the cultural and professional theater experience of the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company. To support this goal, we provide steeply discounted ticket pricing for school groups, with each ticket for our holiday production just $3.
