Metro Theater Company

Metro Theater Company (MTC) creates professional theater, fosters inclusive community, and nurtures meaningful learning through the arts – all inspired by the intelligence and emotional wisdom of young people.

Our work impacts young people and families across our community through three key programs: 1) a season of live theater on our mainstage at the Grandel Theater in Grand Center, 2) touring productions that perform in schools, community centers, and in partnership with other organizations across the St. Louis region and across the country, and 3) residencies, workshops, and professional development programs in schools across the region. MTC is proud to adapt our Say Something, Do Something, an anchor residency program which uses theater, role playing, and improvisation to address violence prevention in youth, to be part of DAP’s Give Respect, Get Respect initiative.

MTC believes that diversity and inclusion in our staff and on our stage is critical to our success in the workplace and across our community. We are committed to telling stories that reflect the young people across the community we serve. By creating an inclusive world for our children today, we believe we create an equitable environment for us all to inhabit tomorrow.
