Help Us Reach Our Goal of $65,000


Dear MTS Family,

We are so proud to announce that since our Town Hall meeting, we have raised over $20,000! We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and love. THANK YOU!

However, the show is not over! We still need an additional $45,000 to complete our goal. Don’t stop spreading the word, sharing posts, creating fundraisers and supporting the MTS family. 

Here is the link to our fundraiser to learn more of our progress and for you to share to anyone and everyone who will listen!

You are invited to join us for our next Town Hall Meeting on July 21st from 11am-1pm. Bring a potluck dish and your show proposals for our 2019 season. Come enjoy friends, food, and the latests updates. See you there!

We are so excited to continue being the theatre in Albuquerque that stresses the community in Community Theatre.


Many, many thanks,

Beth Elliot

Dear MTS Family,

In order to produce a show at Musical Theatre Southwest it takes approximately 125 volunteers working tens of thousands of hours. A single show’s budget can cost anywhere from $20,000 to $45,000. We have no paid staff and no endowment. To keep our building running costs around $78,000 per year. Our ticket prices are some of the lowest in town. Our amazing all volunteer run theatre manages to produce quality productions.

We have just launched our first large fundraising effort since the 2010 fire that destroyed everything. Thank you to everyone who has already contributed to the $60 for the 60th campaign. Unfortunately, we find ourselves in a position that can’t support the dynamic season we had planned.

We regret that at this time, we need to postpone our production of Disney’s Newsies. This ambitious show requires more resources and support than we have at the moment.

We invite you to a Town Hall Meeting on Saturday, June 2nd at 2pm at the theatre. Come hear more about what is going on and help with the selection process for the show that will replace Newsies’s fall time slot.

If you love MTS, if you have good memories here, if you feel at home in this delightful community, we need your help. Please contribute so that we can keep our doors open. We love our MTS family, and are so grateful for the many people working diligently to make this theatre the best it can be, please join us and make your contribution today. #SaveMTS

We look forward to seeing you here on June 2nd.

Many thanks,

Beth Elliot
