2020 - 2021 season
The Phantom Tollbooth (TYA)
The exceptional tale of Milo, Tock and a certain magic tollbooth is brought splendidly to life on stage in The Phantom Tollbooth JR. Adapted from Norton Juster's beloved, award-winning children's book, this inventive musical features a melodious score by Arnold Black and witty lyrics full of wordplay by Pulitzer Prize and three-time-Tony-winner, Sheldon Harnick.
Even surrounded by dozens of toys, Milo is bored. Nothing interests him at all... until he takes a trip through the Phantom Tollbooth. Transported to the Land of Wisdom, Milo is thrust into adventure when Princesses Rhyme and Reason need rescuing in order to bring peace between two kings. The kings, from Dictionopolis and Digitopolis, are feuding over whether “words” or “numbers” are most important in their kingdoms. Knee-deep in danger, language and math along the way, Milo learns everything has a purpose. Upon his return home, he realizes there is never a reason to be bored in a world full of hidden discoveries.

VMT is pleased to present its first non-musical production, Greater Tuna by Ed Howard, Joe Sears, and Jaston Williams. Directed by Hal Ott.
What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye, and Rev. Spikes have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small-town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas’ third-smallest town.
The long-running Off Broadway hit features two actors creating the entire population of Tuna in a tour de farce of quick change artistry, changing costumes and characterizations faster than a jack rabbit runs from a coyote. Two actors, twenty characters, and a barrel of laughs, y’all.
Attend a show, participate in the online silent auction, and other special activities planned!
This show has been cast.

POSTPONED TO JULY 2022
CANCEL THAT CANCELLATION!!! HOT OFF THE PRESSES.
Mamma Mia is such a fabulous production and such a big production we could not find a way to do it on a small cast size or small audience size. It deserves to be done right. That means we won't be able to produce it in 2021.
BUT - We just found out that the national touring version was delayed by one year, so that means we were able to rebook the show for 2022 when we sincerely hope everything and especially musical theatre will be back to normal.
Auditions/performances - postponed again....but rescheduled for July 2022. More details soon.
