WHO WE ARE:
Magenta Theater Company (MTC) is a family-friendly community theater in Vancouver, Washington. Vancouver is already home to a number of theaters, why the need for another?
It all started with a director's quest to find relevant contemporary material for local artists to perform. "Something to make people laugh, yet with enough substance to make people think." There were ample materials on the market, but finding pieces that matched the personality and interests of the director, her actors, and the community proved to be a little more difficult. The director set about writing a full-length comedy play dealing with issues facing families in modern times. When the play was almost finished, the question of "Where to perform?" reared its head. From that rearing came the idea to start a theater company.
Magenta was born.
Magenta is committed to promoting contemporary new works by local playwrights and musicians in addition to known comedies and mysteries. The company is founded on artistic excellence with all productions reflecting the cast and crew's commitment to give 100% of their talents and energies.
Volunteers play a huge part in Magenta's success. Besides the obvious need for actors, an extensive behind-the-scenes crew is required for each show. Opportunities are available in the following areas: assistant director, stage management, stagehands, lights and sound technicians, makeup, costumes, props, set design, set construction, house management, ushering, concessions, publicity and clean-up crew. You pay no fee to be a part of Magenta Theater!
We are here to entertain you and bring a little light into your lives!
Founded in 2002, Magenta Theater enriches the Vancouver/Portland area with Mainstage Productions, Special Events and Theater Education.
Magenta exists to create community one stage at a time.
