“Every child deserves a chance to shine.”
For over 35 years, Musical Theatre Academy of Orange County (MTAOC), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has been providing the youth of our community with an innovative performing arts education program that not only nurtures their talents in music and theater but also develops their abilities to excel in school and life. Our message has always been and will always be “Every child deserves a chance to shine.” As a result, more than 3,000 boys and girls, ages 4 to 18, have benefited from our program. In offering our youth a special opportunity to explore and enjoy the arts through live theater performance, MTAOC is helping them to develop the imagination, confidence and important life skills they will need in order to better understand themselves and the world around them. Everyone deserves the chance to grow into the spotlight of their potential, and at MTAOC our students get that chance. By measuring our success by the size of the smiles our students have when they discover what they can accomplish, MTAOC knows that they are helping pave the way for their future.
Lives We've Impacted
Many of MTA’s students have used the skills that they have acquired at the academy to advance both their professional and personal lives. Whether they have gone onto further a career in the performing arts or ventured into other professional fields, all have benefited from their MTA experience.
Combined together, the rewards that a child gains by participating in a performing arts program can make all the difference when it comes to their ability to succeed in school, career and personal goals.
