This Week's Featured Regional Theater: Red Mountain Theatre Company in Birmingham, AL

RMTC is a non-profit professional theatre organization with an emphasis on musical theatre. RMTC provides uniqueeducational, training and performing opportunities for aspiring and culturally diverse artists, while growing new and existing audiences through quality theatrical experiences.

The curtain first rose on Summerfest in 1979, when James Hatcher of the University of Alabama in Birmingham Theatre Department and Birmingham's Mayor David Vann realized the need for a summer "stock" company.

Summerfest was originally created to provide productions as part of the UAB Town and Gown Theatre's academic year but over its 30 year history, has grown to become one of the only year-round professional musical theatre organizations in Alabama.

In 2007, Summerfest Musical Theatre officially became Red Mountain Theatre Company but has held on the organization's original mission to offer professional quality productions, Youth Programs and Education and Outreach opportunities to our local and national arts communities.

With its own unique Cabaret Theatre located right in the heart of downtown Birmingham's Theatre District and summer Mainstage productions performed at the Dorothy Jemison Day Theater at the Alabama School of Fine Arts, Red Mountain Theatre Company continues to bring both well-known national performers and incredible local talent to the Birmingham stage.
