The MTS Foundation

Striving to create quality productions to inspire and develop new talent, broadening the appreciation of Musical Theatre in Stafford.

Musical Theatre Stafford is a registered charity, presenting three theatrical productions a year at the Gatehouse Theatre in Stafford. One of those shows is presented by our youth section – Musical Youth Theatre Stafford (MYTS) and many of our other shows involve children and young people. 

We are dedicated to encouraging children and young people to get involved in the arts, and theatre in particular. We have seen so many children over the last 10 years of MYTS go on to have opportunities and careers in the arts as a direct result of being involved in MYTS’ theatre productions, as well as with other groups.

So, in addition to everything we do to push for the highest quality we can we are introducing the MTS Foundation to give children and young people a wonderful opportunity to come to the theatre.

Registration with The MTS Foundation is free and enables group bookings of massively discounted tickets – typically less than half price. Also, for every nine children an adult gets a free ticket, so teachers / carers / leaders can travel for free.
