Musical Theatre Southwest

Premier Community Musical Theatre of New Mexico

 A strong bond with the community is what has made Musical Theatre Southwest what it is today— a community theatre built on the strong traditions of presenting Broadway-style musicals to families from across New Mexico and the nation.

We can’t wait to see you again!


In March 2020, our regular season was cancelled and we have since moved the season to 2022. Ninety percent of MTS’ income comes from ticket sales from our season productions, so these cancellations present a major challenge to the health of our organization.

Even still, we are eagerly antici…pating welcoming back our theater family to enjoy live performances!


In 2020, we cut our operating expenses in half but still spend approximately $8,250 per month in rent, utilities, insurance, etc. We are also diligently applying for grants that we may qualify for to help us as well.


We need your support! Please consider donating to MTS’ “Antici…pation!” campaign from June to August 2021. This is a 12-week campaign to raise 6 months’ worth of operating funds to help carry us through to the end of 2021, so we can open our doors to you again!

If every person (or household) in our MTS community family donated $50 – the price of two tickets – we would quickly raise our goal of $49,500. Of course we would happily accept any amount you are comfortable giving. This would ensure our ability to continue nurturing New Mexico storytellers and enable us to continue our mission to produce quality entertainment for New Mexico!

Thank you ABQ!

We would not be able to keep our doors open without you. You can always use your help whether it is a small donation, participating in any of our upcoming virtual events, or volunteering on committees. We would also like to thank the City of Albuquerque’s Urban Enhancement Trust Fund, New Mexico Cares, and the New Mexico Arts foundations for their support through grants for their funding to help plan and produce Spamalot and the upcoming An Enchanted Cabaret.
