For Educators

We use the magic of live theatre to encourage children to read, develop critical and creative thinking, and to be curious about the world around them. We are dedicated to bringing the finest quality theatre to young people. At MTC we take stories from page to stage and make curriculum connections with theatrical experiences your students will talk about for years to come.

MTC provides quality, Professional Theatre for Young Audiences right here in Northeast Ohio, so come on and take advantage of it! Bring your Church, Scouts or Club to a performance at Magical Theatre Company, or have us come to you. Let the Magic begin!
