Family and Friends of MTA!

In celebration of our 34rd year of MTAOC, we are gearing up for an incredible season! We are hitting the ground running with a spectacular Fall Line Up. We are excited to announce the Brite Stars will be doing Disney’s The Little Mermaid, our Rising Stars will be doing Guys and Dolls, and our Shooting Stars will be performing The Music Man! What a season this will be!

We are very hopeful that we can produce these 3 shows, along with a packed Spring Season, with the highest caliber of theater education, costumes, set design and special effects to match the incredible talent of the young actors on stage. In order to accomplish this, we are going to need the help and support of the MTAOC families and friends. Our goal is to raise $40,000 to help off set production costs, which will include upgrades to our sound system and microphone package.

We would love for you to join us for a “Night Under the Stars” – an adult evening at the exquisitely beautiful Shady Canyon home of the Pozzuoli family. This mix ‘n mingler will be held on October 5, 2019 at 7 pm and will be a wonderful chance to get to know fellow MTAOC families. Enjoy live music by singer/songwriter Joey Sykes, an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, valet service, and custom pizzas baked fresh in the outdoor pizza oven. Guarantee your spot by reserving your today! Last year we sold out!  Your donation of $75 per person can be reserved by clicking on the ticket link. Tickets can also be reserved by check/credit card on the first day/week of fall registration. Be sure to reserve early as we will have limited space available!

This night has proven to be an elegant, FUNd raising evening! This year we will once again include our WISH UPON A STAR Pull, along with on line auction opportunities including Vacation packages to 5 star resorts! There will be “priceless” experiences up for bid like attending a show at Segerstrom Center for the Arts with Miss Holly, a Private Master Class with Jimmy or Disneyland/California Adventure passes and four VIP tickets to see Frozen (starring Miss McKenna) at the Hyperion Theater. We will also be raffling off a full season of tuition! Look for the basket beginning on Registration Day!

If you and your family have a donation or special service that you would like to contribute to our event, please contact attention Liz Curtis, our board Secretary, Mary Gonzales, or Holly Bisaha. Thanks to those who have already stepped up to contribute to our special event. The children, staff, committee, and board members are so appreciative of all your support! We know this is going to be a year to be remembered!

May the remainder of your summer be a happy and healthy one! We will see you in the fall!

Sincerely, the “Night Under the Stars” Committee (Shannon Pozzuoli, Kelsey Whitmer, Liz Curtis, Natalie Meyerson, Alyse Baron, Mary Gonzales, and Holly Bisaha)
