We are excited to introduce you to Musical Theatre Festivals Educational Foundation (MTF).
We founded this 501(c)3 charitable organization because we know students who participate in arts programs do better in school, develop deeper empathy, welcome inclusivity, and are more engaged with their communities. We are aware that quality performing arts educational opportunities are not accessible to every student who has the desire to participate. We want to change that.
When we took over ownership of MTCA in 2019, there were no resources for scholarship opportunities; we immediately saw the need, and MTF Educational Foundation was born. The mission of MTF is to support Middle School, High School and Youth Theatre Students by providing meaningful and impactful scholarships for musical theatre educational opportunities and fund resources supporting educational theatre.
We are passionate about our mission and want to thank you for considering partnering with us. Your support of Educational Theatre is more than just about opportunities to perform; it is about building community, confidence, and connections for all students regardless of their resources.

"I’ve adjudicated this event for about a decade. Though the title has “competition” in it, it couldn’t feel further from it. It feels like a collaboration, a master class and a community all tied up with a sparkly gold ribbon. Get your students to this event as soon as you can!"
