Mountain Maryland Theatre Festival

4th FSU Theatre Experience


The Department of Theatre and Dance at Frostburg State University is excited to host the 4th Annual Mountain Maryland Theatre Festival on January 20 & 21, 2023 in FSU’s prestigious Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center.

This year’s theme – YOUR VOICE HERE! – focuses on the individual power and spirit of the human voice through singing, speaking, movement, creativity, thinking, and art. The weekend features exciting engagements for young artists in the areas of acting, design and technology, and stage management. There will be professional workshops in all areas, including a radio event with 91.9 WFWM radio, one-act and scene presentations, a Tech Olympics challenge, adjudication opportunities in acting, stage management, and design and technology, a keynote experience, awards ceremony, and a karaoke and dance party!

The Mountain Maryland Theatre Festival promotes and supports regional performing arts programs by creating development and networking opportunities for artists and their teachers. The MMTF is opened to kids in grades 8 – 12. In 2022, students from eleven different schools attended.

The cost of the festival is $40. Meals and refreshments on both Friday and Saturday, a festival t-shirt, and other fun items will be provided for registrants.
