Foundation & Government Support

"CMT continues to stand out based on their dedication to training youth and providing young performers and their families an educational and professional environment in which to learn and appreciate the arts." -- Bill O'Brien, Director, Theater and Musical Theater, National Endowment for the Arts 2006-2009.


Private, family, and community foundations, as well as Government giving, help to support new works, costumes, scholarships and ticket donations, outreach, and general operating expenses.
