• About Teen Musical Theater of Oregon

    The Teen Musical Theater of Oregon (TMTO) is the youth theater program of Craterian Performances. TMTO shows are professionally-staged, large-scale and high-energy productions that are fun for the whole family. When you attend a TMTO show, you’ll be giving these talented teens the audience they deserve, and you’ll be getting one of the best entertainment values in Southern Oregon. As a TMTO patron said after a recent show, “The entire production was so professional. We will definitely try to see all of the Teen Musical Theater shows. We will bring some other people along with us, too. It’s something we want to share.” Share the fun and share the excitement: don’t miss the next TMTO show!

    Depending on the show and casting requirements, the age range for some TMTO shows includes children age 9 – 11; the age range for all TMTO shows is 12 – 19. In order to “anchor” the show and to give cast members the opportunity to work with professional/adult actors, TMTO will often use “Guest Stars” in principal roles.

    The typical rehearsal  and performance schedule lasts seven weeks. In the summer, rehearsal blocks are typically M-F, 12:30 – 5:30; during the school year rehearsals are typically Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 5:00 – 8:00, and Saturdays 12:30 – 5:30. Specific rehearsal times are typically announced one week  in advance; the amount of rehearsal time required for each cast member varies significantly based on the size of the part and the overall needs of the production.

    We currently produce a winter, spring, and two summer shows. Click on the “Auditions” tab for more information about our upcoming production. If no information is currently listed, check back soon!

    Participation Fee: $425 (Up to $100 per family can be earned back by completing volunteer hours; sibling discounts can be applied. Limited scholarships are available; complete and submit the appropriate scholarship form, found on the “Auditions/Productions” and “Classes/Camps” tabs).
