JP Haynie (Artistic Director MLT)

After more than 550 days between closing night of Steel Magnolias in February of 2020 and opening night of Songs for a New World on August 20th 2021, it gives me great joy to bring live theatre back to our stage.  This time has been an incredible challenge for the arts community, and we could not do it without your support and patronage.  We at MLT are incredibly proud of the effort and talent that goes into our productions, and this marks a brand new start for our theatre.  If you enjoy the show, please consider returning for future productions, supporting the theatre as a donor, or even becoming a season subscriber to receive additional benefits.
