• 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 – 12; 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 summer show. Click on the “Auditions” tab for more information about our upcoming production. If no information is currently listed, check back soon

    Participation Fee: $300 + $100 refundable family volunteer deposit (limited scholarships are available; apply by completing and submitting the form under the “Audition/Registration” tab)

    Show Information and Character Breakdown

    Ariel

    King Triton (possible Guest Artist role)
