  • Mamma Mia! Auditions and Parent Meeting
    It is hard to believe that we aren't even finished with the play and we need to be thinking about the musical!  This is just a reminder that the general auditions will be held on Tuesday, December 3 beginning at 5:30PM. Unfortunately it is impossible to set an ending time for this evening since we don't know how many students will be auditioning. Callbacks are scheduled for Wednesday, December 4 at 2:45PM if needed.

    Audition materials (audition forms, schedules, parent permission letter and the tryout pieces and practice files) are now available. You can download the forms here. The vocal audition instructions, music, and mp3 files are in Schoology. The access code is 26WC-D3H6-D3DHX. Be sure to download the audition packet either from here or from Schoology.

    Remember, there is a mandatory meeting on Monday, December 2 from 6:00-6:45PM for all parents of students who are auditioning for the first time for an MTPA musical. Veterans are welcome to attend. This meeting will be held in Mr. Wagner’s room (140) and will address audition information, scheduling issues, and other important topics related to the musical audition process. It is imperative that one of your parents attend this meeting. There will also be a brief optional rehearsal of the audition pieces on Monday evening, December 2 from 6:00-6:45PM.

Become an MTPA Sponsor!

A few years ago we began a sponsorship program for MTPA. All money raised through sponsorships goes directly to help fund MTPA productions. If everyone in MTPA got one sponsor it would help a great deal.  All sponsors are listed in the program. More details are on the sponsor sheet. If you have any questions please contact the Wagners.
Sponsor forms are due by January 31, 2020.

Photos from MTPA 2019-2020- WE Need Your PHOTOS!


We would like photos from both the fall play and musical. These can be production pictures AND/OR candid shots. We would love to have a lot of fun pictures for the banquet at the end of the year. You can upload photos using this link:

(you will be taken to the SmugMug upload page for MTPA)

You do not need a password to upload photos. However after you upload your photos and click ”I'm done uploading“ the next screen will ask for a password to view the album. You won’t be able to go farther as we have password protected the album so that it is not open to the world. Have no fear your pictures were uploaded if you used the above link!

Please upload pictures at any time this year! We would love to have a great collection of pictures for our banquet! Thanks!

List of Businesses Contacted for MTPA Sponsors

We would like to keep track of businesses that have been contacted for the MTPA sponsorships so that we don’t ask a business twice. If you have contacted a business about becoming a sponsor (regardless if they said yes or no) please submit that information here: Submit Name of Business 

If you would like to see the list of businesses that have been contacted please click here: List of Contacted Businesses 

Please contact the Wagners if you have any trouble accessing or using these lists. Thanks!
