Since 1972, Mary Moody Northen Theatre (MMNT) has stood at the center of the St. Edward's University professional theater training program, providing opportunities for students to work side-by-side with practicing professional theater artists and producing work designed to inspire artists and audiences alike.
MMNT is one of the few undergraduate theaters in the country operating a full season in association with Actors’ Equity Association, the labor union representing American actors and stage managers in the theatre. Through our AEA affiliation, MMNT provides student actors and stage managers professional mentoring opportunities and points toward professional union membership while challenging them to work at the highest professional level.
***A NOTE ON COVID-19 SAFETY***
The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, guest artists and community is our highest priority. We continue to actively monitor public health recommendations from local, state and national authorities and work closely with the St. Edward’s University administration and Actors' Equity Association to determine how upcoming events may be impacted. Please note that performance dates or modalities may be subject to change.
Current health and safety measures include symptom screening, face coverings and reduced seating capacity.
If you would like to see some of the ways we have negotiated making art through the pandemic, check out this little bit of loveliness from our Pippin cast. And here is the Austin American Statesman review of Twelfth Night, our first foray back to a full live production (April 2021). We are thrilled to welcome you back into the arena for The Book Club Play, running now through November 21.

Mockumentary meets Melville in this contemporary comedy with a giant heart. When the members of a devoted book club become the subjects of a documentary filmmaker and accept a provocative new member, their long-standing group dynamics take a hilarious turn. Sprinkled with wit, joy and novels galore. Featuring Equity guest Sheila Gordon.
"Book Club is like Lord of the Flies with wine and dip." - Alex
