As we celebrate our 75th Anniversary, the Morgan-Wixson Theatre is engaged in a meaningful effort to amplify new voices to engage, challenge and connect our audiences to each other and the wider community as we elevate the greater potential of what theatre can offer to our lives. Beginning September 2021, MWT hosts the inaugural New Works Festival. 

The festival will stage one-two new plays per week for five weeks. Plays were chosen from an open round of submissions seeking previously unproduced plays for up to six actors. Each selected play will have two performances, Friday and Saturday nights.

Tickets are FREE with promo code newworks (suggested donation $20).
