We started Monterey Peninsula Musical Theater, Inc. to help musical theater students study and perform musical theater, and to bring these performances to audiences who may have never seen a musical theater performance.
To this end we sponsor musical theater trips for students in 6th grade through high school on trips to perform and attend a workshop in Disneyland Resort, and international trips to countries without a vibrant musical theater industry.
We also plan on offering financial scholarships to students who cannot afford the voice, dance and acting lessons necessary for musical theater.
We are a group of parents with students who are studying musical theater on the Monterey Peninsula. We found that there are significant financial barriers to the study of musical theater, and a need for these students to perform and bring musical theater to communities and schools that are not exposed to musical theater.
