Metrowest Family Theater (MFT), a beloved 501(c)3 nonprofit community organization, is thrilled to announce our latest fundraising campaign to ensure the continued vitality and sustainability of our theater.

While ticket sales help contribute to our overall budget, they cover only 37% of our total production costs. To secure our future and maintain our high-quality productions, additional financial support is essential. Grants and ongoing fundraising efforts will play a crucial role in our long-term sustainability.

We are now setting our sights on a new fundraising target of $5,000. Your continued support will be vital in keeping MFT thriving, enabling us to cover essential costs such as costumes, lighting, scenery, and more. Every donation helps and is fully tax-deductible.

Join us in supporting the future of Metrowest Family Theater and help us continue to bring exceptional theater experiences to our community. Together, we can ensure that MFT remains a vibrant part of our community for years to come!

Mission

A 501(c)3 organization

MFT was founded in 2000 by then sixteen year-old Samantha Bower (Hammel).  Our mission is to bring quality plays and musicals to the Metrowest community and to bring children and families together in an atmosphere that is both exciting and educational.  Our award-winning productions include cast members from veteran actors to novice performers. Our shows include children, teenagers, and adults, and we usually have a few parents and animals join in on the fun as well!  Metrowest Family Theater auditions are generally open to children, teenagers, and adults. Performing with MFT enables everyone to work in a fun, friendly, professional theater atmosphere.  From veteran actors to parents of actors, everyone loves to get in on the act!
