Messages from the Board

“As we celebrate the past fifty years of nationally recognized artistic excellence, Mill Mountain Theatre is proudly building for the future.  As the only professional theatre in our region with an ongoing relationship with Actors’ Equity Association, MMT’s strong fiscal management and artistic quality have reinforced our position as a leader in the theatre industry. MMT Board and Staff are committed to its financially-sustainable, market-driven business model.  We are building capital, establishing a sound infrastructure, and collaborating with other organizations to help ensure that MMT remains a key cultural and economic asset in the region for many years to come.

Thanks to YOU – our patrons, donors, families – we look forward to another 50 plus years of offering live professional theatre and world class conservatory education to the Roanoke Valley and beyond!”

“Thank you for returning to your seats!

Mill Mountain Theatre is thrilled and honored to open the doors once again to our patrons, vendors, supporters, sponsors and conservatory students. 2014 is not only Mill Mountain Theatre’s first full season since our reinvention; it also marks our 50th.

We would like to thank everyone for support and patience while we were working to give Roanoke’s professional theatre back to the region. We offer special thanks to our conservatory students and dedicated staff whom helped push the doors back open.

MMT has developed a financially-sustainable and market-driven business plan that considers the new economy. With your support we are making Mill Mountain Theatre financially strong while continuing the tradition of providing excellent artistic quality. We look forward to another 50 plus years of providing live professional theatre and world class conservatory education to the Roanoke Valley and beyond.”
