"Our local theatre company, MAT, does a great job of promoting local theatre in Havre, MT.  They are genuinely interested in recruiting new actors, both adults and children alike.  MAT sponsors summer children's theater camp and youth productions, along with offering internship opportunities to college students and recent grads.  As Havre doesn't have an abundance of entertainment options, having MAT gives the community a reason to stick around town.  And, who knows, a budding actor may come out of Havre some day because of their tutorage. As a local business, we try to sponsor at least one play per year.  We have approximately 30 employees and we typically get a group together to attend the Death by Chocolate production, along with a couple plays each year.  We have never been disappointed with any of the productions.  Not only is it a great way to promote office bonding outside the normal €œwork€ environment, but it also helps introduce theatre to someone who may have not taken the opportunity to attend on their own."

"All you have to do is go to MAT's Death by Chocolate fundraiser to see what their relevance is to this community. The event has grown to be one of The Events to attend each year in Havre. Great food, fellowship, theatre, and a great cause gets this event to sell out each year. The support of the event is a reflection of how so many in our area appreciate the top-quality performances that the MAT put on. Thank you MAT for all the hard work, and dedication it takes to keep Theatre, at a high level, alive on the Hi Line."

"My girls love the plays as well as our grandsons.  I think MAT really adds to the things available in our community for people to do, both for the actors involved and the audiences that watch.  We had some Realtor's up from Billings to teach a few Continuing Education classes and we took them to The Cabaret and they were very impressed that we had such a quality play available in a community of 9,000."

"MAT has tremendous relevance to our community.  The word €œcommunity€ in my understanding means to come together.  MAT facilitates this on every level.  I've been involved in MAT productions as part of the pit orchestra.  This has opened up opportunities to meet new people I otherwise would never know.  I am also a regular MAT patron.  In north central, small town Montana it is easy to assume we lack culture.  That couldn't be further from the truth.  I am in awe by all of the talent this community offers.  As a business we are proud to invest in MAT and will continue to do so."

"Montana Actor's Theatre is an asset to our community, bringing arts to rural Montana and growing our own local talent in so many ways.  As a business owner in this community I have seen a huge return on investment in donations not only in my community but in my family, for my son has become very active in MAT and is thriving and growing because of what MAT brings to our community.  I believe our community greatly appreciates what MAT has brought which is shown by their support to the MAT program allowing it to offer an activity for our youth to perform and develop in the arts or to just enjoy theatre."

"My wife and I have enjoyed many of the plays put on by MAT. We find that it is always an enjoyable night out. We have enjoyed their performances presented at our Lions Club Christmas parties and in return, we have enjoyed volunteering to help them at their performances. We greatly enjoy and appreciate everything about MAT."
