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.

We are very sad to announce that the production of Mamma Mia has been cancelled.
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. And unfortunately for us, the Broadway version will be touring nationally in 2022, so rebooking this for next year was not an option. So it may be a couple of years before we can get bring her back to VMT.

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!
We are approaching our fall cabaret with a bit of twist this year. Details are still being worked out, but we are working to make this more of a dinner followed by theatrical cabaret performance, with limited tickets.
Auditions for solo/duet acts will be held in late summer. More details forthcoming.
