Who is MTC? 

Marin Theatre Company is the Bay Area’s premier mid-sized theater and the leading professional theater in the North Bay. MTC was founded as the Mill Valley Center for the Performing Arts in 1966 by 35 Mill Valley residents who were passionate about bringing a performing arts center to their community. Eleven years later, in 1977, the organization focused its mission on exclusively producing and presenting plays. In 1984, the company changed its name to Marin Theatre Company, as it is known today, and opened the doors to its 231-seat proscenium theater, now known as the Boyer Theatre. Since then, MTC has continued to produce world-class theater for Marin County and Bay Area Communities, including world premieres and west coast premieres. MTC strives to set a national standard for intimate theater experiences, featuring provocative plays by passionate playwrights. We create quality educational programs that inspire, educate, and encourage empathy through educational and outreach activities, including student matinee performances, summer camps, in-school residencies, and after-school programs 

MTC is a LORT-D company, which operates with a $2.6M annual budget and currently produces a four-play mainstage season in addition to a new play festival, periodic staged readings, and development workshops.
