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)

The mission of the Teen Musical Theater of Oregon is to provide professional training and performance opportunities for cast members, and to produce professional quality, affordable, family-friendly entertainment.
TMTO is supported in part by grants from: the Jackson County Cultural Coalition funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon’s arts, humanities and heritage; the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation; and the Medford Arts Commission.
