We call our series The Song Is You! because the songs we perform in our concerts and cabarets are really about you – just like the musicals they are from. That’s why TMTP creates performances that touch both hearts and minds – and why our audiences continue to grow each year.
Be sure to check out our our 8 fantastic concerts and cabarets:
