The Monterey County Theatre Alliance promotes awareness and appreciation of the quality and diversity of local live theatre by acting as a liaison between venues, artists and the public.

MCTA provides a monthly newsletter and web site.

Back Stage, the monthly newsletter, lists current productions, auditions, calendars of current and theatres' scheduled plays, articles covering Monterey area theatre history, current activities; and local  actors, directors and tech-persons. The Backstage is either emailed as PDF or as paper copy via US mail.

The MCTA web site,, provides information about current (" Now Showing " page) and upcoming (" Coming Soon" page) productions from MCTA Producers and Affiliates..   The web site lists details about each show, i.e. the theatre,  show name, dates, a short description, and a "buy tickets" link to the theatre's individual web site.

Members enjoy discounted tickets, two for one (BOGO) for selected performances at participating theatres.

Members are invited to MCTA social events and discounted theatre gatherings, for example, a post-performance Q&A session with the show's director and actors. 
Producing and Affiliates Membership

We support our MCTA Producing Members by advertizing shows, post audition announcements and classes for actors. We work with the Producers to post a  theatre company's season as early in the year as possible.  Space is available for posting ads in the MCTA newsletter at a reduced rate. .  The web site supports social media interface with Facebook.

MCTA Affiliates who typically produce only one or two shows a year, have their organization's  information  in the newsletter and on the website.
Scholarships and Education

MCTA awards two  scholarships a year for graduating Monterey County high school or community college students who have been accepted to college or will transfer to a college to study Theatre Arts.
