Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company ignites the hearts and minds of people of all cultural backgrounds by producing theater of the highest artistic standards. Rooted in Jewish content, our work explores differences, illuminates commonalities, and fosters greater understanding among all people.
MJTC’s programming consists of four productions a year (presented at the intimate, 149-seat Hillcrest Center Theater in the Highland area of St. Paul).
Along with a season of four (4) productions we have:
Doorways: an ongoing program of forums, lectures, symposia, and communications designed to open the doors to greater understanding and enjoyment of the plays we present and to deeper insights into the subjects and issues they address.
Wellsprings, an initiative to discover and develop a continuous flow of new plays rooted in the Jewish experience but illuminating the common humanity among us all.
Ticket Subsidy Program: Since 2002, MJTC has been welcoming classrooms of schoolchildren to our theater even though full ticket price could not be paid. Over the years, more and more teachers have requested discounted tickets, and we have allowed them to attend MJTC performances without paying full ticket price. Unfortunately, as the number of students requiring discounted tickets has increased, the resultant lost income for programming has started to have a negative impact on our organization. Currently, 76% of school children who attend a performance at MJTC do so through our ticket subsidy program. Won't you please consider a contribution to our new Ticket Subsidy Program Fund? Your contribution will enable classrooms of diverse students to attend a performance who otherwise might not have the opportunity to do so. Our Ticket Subsidy Program reduces the price of a ticket to as low as $2, with ticket pricing based upon the percentage of students in a school building who receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our goal is to insure that all children may experience, learn from, and enjoy the cultural and professional theater experience of the Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company.
