ABOUT

Mountain Green Musical Theater is a non-profit organization dedicated to establishing musical theater in our schools and community. We partner with our local schools to produce quality productions that help build student's confidence, develop talents and create lasting friendships. We believe that the theater arts is a medium that can change lives and bring joy!

We also offer costume, prop and set rentals for all of our past productions. We love creating quality costumes for our shows and would love to see them enjoyed by students in other schools!

MGMT was founded by parents and PTSO members to provide a low-cost, high-quality musical theater experience for Mountain Green students without burdening our school administrators. We feel that school musicals provide a unique opportunity for kids to perform alongside their peers and in front of their community. Music can build bridges, and the theater arts is a medium that brings together dance, art, singing and drama to create a memorable experience like no other. We are excited to share our love of theater with the community of Mountain Green, Utah.
