Show Sponsorships

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a Meadville Community Theatre production. Putting on a great show takes time, hard work and talent—we’ve got plenty of those things! It also takes financial support from the community and that’s where you come in! Help us continue a long-standing tradition of helping Meadville’s oldest all-volunteer community theatre produce professional quality productions, while developing long lasting community relationships and an appreciation for the theatrical arts. Your contributions help pay for costumes, sets, lighting, etc. – all of which are vital to a successful, high quality performance. The show must go on and we hope you’ll be a part of it!

Become a Patron

Meadville Community Theatre is looking forward to our 52nd year, and we want you to join us.

Meadville Community Theatre is a non-profit organization that focuses on providing accessible and affordable arts entertainment to the Meadville community, as well as providing a welcoming and versatile environment for local talent and artists.

As an exclusively volunteer organization, we rely heavily on sponsorships and individual donations to fund our productions. Ticket sales cover only a percentage of our annual operating budget. Your donation will be used for production expenses, materials and publicity costs so that we may continue to bring the arts to our community.

The only thing we need to guarantee a fantastic season is YOU! Without the support of art makers and art lovers alike, MCT wouldn’t be able to bring quality theatre to our community. As an all-volunteer theater, support from our members is largely what keeps our lights on, allows us to produce shows, purchase materials, build sets, and more. We know that you do everything you can to support our theater, which allows us to continue offering quality theatrical entertainment at reasonable prices. Our goal is to continue to elevate the work we produce.

Please consider becoming a member of the MCT family by making a donation toward our 2018-2019 season today. No matter the amount, you will be contributing to programs that transform lives.

We’ll see you at Meadville Community Theatre where “community” is our middle name!

Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization. From our inception in 1967, we have always been a completely volunteer run organization, from our Board of Directors to our cast and crew’s. Are you interested in volunteering? Volunteers not only gain knowledge and experience, but also help support the theatrical arts in our community.

Box Office

We are always looking for outgoing and friendly people to help out in the box office and as ushers for our productions. Each performance requires at least two people working box office and two people ushering. Each box office person and usher also gets the opportunity to see the production for free! Sound like a job for you? Follow the link below to fill out an MCT Volunteer Application.

Technical Crew

Join our tech crew! Tech crew is what makes a show run so smoothly, whether it is operating the light or soundboards, moving the set, or helping with costumes. Depending on the job, some experience is necessary, but we always happy to find a tech job for those who are interested! Sound like a job for you? Follow the link below to fill out an MCT Volunteer Application.

Set Build/Prop production

Every show has a set and every set needs to be built from the ground up! Any experience individual is welcome to help as much as they can build, paint, and construct sets and prop pieces for upcoming performances. Sound like a job for you?
