MilkyWay Theatre Company

We bring together stars from all corners of our galaxy to create new theatre. Let them shine!

Our Mission

Our purpose is to help artists grow and create new works, while staying true to the humanity that we all share on this tiny spec of a planet we all call home. In this vast galaxy, we want to guide the new generation of artists in joining the ranks of stars from around the world. Let's create the next generation of broadway musicals and plays. Let's explore new projects with the next generation of performers. And let's bring together the next dream teams of creatives that will spearhead all of these projects. That's our goal. And together we can do it!
