Help connect MTA to businesses or individuals to ensure a healthy future!

MTA’s doors are open to not just entertain the community but to give the talented youth of our community a safe and fun place to share their talents, learn and have fun. It is not just another business, but an important part of Anthem. Without it, there would not be a stage for many of our young performers to perform on outside of their schools. The non-profit’s founders, Jackie and Jeff Hammond, are proud of the decade-long success of watching the community’s youth thrive and grow under its roof.  

At the end of 2017, we were informed that our current lease would be raised by 23%. This increase would have MTA shutting its doors at our current location as it was not possible to sustain the cost. The board, led by Jackie and Jeff Hammond, tried their best to renegotiate with our landlords, offering smart-minded business options for a win for both sides. The landlord was unwilling to work with us or adjust the increase. Because of that, in more words or less, it kicked us out of our current space.

We dove in to find new options that would not only allow us to keep MTA’s doors open but to ensure that our next home would be a location that we could afford and grow in. 

In February, a space was identified and that means that MTA will say goodbye to our home of 6 years over this spring/summer. 

But MTA isn’t just moving, we’re growing. Here are just a few details about our new space: 

  • 600 sq feet of additional space
  • A more spacious lobby
  • A larger rehearsal space and black box
  • More seating in our new theater
  • Doors on both sides of the auditorium to allow for easier entrances and exits by our audience

While all of this is positive news, we still need your support in ways we have not asked of our amazing families and supporters before to ensure this outcome.

To help cover the cost of our tenant improvement build out and these upgrades at our new space, located at 42201 N 41st Drive near Ray's Pizza, the new landlord has offered to pay a large percentage of the construction costs, which is great news!

However, our rent is still increasing by approximately 13% from our current rate with MTA still being responsible for over $40,000 in hard costs before we can make the move. By the time you have read this, MTA will have already paid the initial $12,000 to keep everything moving. To ensure the continued health of MTA, we are hoping to raise $70,000 by the beginning of the summer. Lowered to $58,210 due to donations sent in via check or given in cash! Our total raised to date is $39,812, which 57% to our goal!

We know how much many of you already give from volunteer hours to our Terrific 20 and Super Terrific 20 to participating in our programs. For a decade, your support has made MTA what it is and we can’t thank you enough. 

This ask is different. 

This is an ask to ensure that MTA’s future is secured for you, your children and other families in the future.
While any amount can help us, we are looking for supporters to help us secure the bright future we are reaching for with significant gifts. From naming the theater after your family or business to season subscriptions for life, we hope to secure the following supporters:
