MMT Summer Camps
This is a three week summer camp experience, on the Squitieiri Studio Theater at the Curtis M. Phillips Center. MMT was founded in the summer of 2010 with our first production of "Beauty and the Beast Jr." Since then, MMT has had the pleasure of working with hundreds of students, ages 5 - 18, in the Gainesville area. Participation in our shows has given our students the skills necessary to navigate our fast-paced world: leadership, creative thinking, teamwork, passion, speech, and love of culture and the arts. Our shows are done as "large" as they can be with beautiful sets, gorgeous costumes, and equipment and venues that are professional and all of this is done by parent and community volunteers. Even our students participate behind the scenes! Our goal is to wow our audience while capturing the minds and hearts of all that participate.
