Welcome To Our 47th Annual Season

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, providing student actors and stage managers the ability to earn points toward professional union membership, and challenging them to work at the highest professional level.

What that means for you is a season of some of Austin’s finest theater offered in an affordable, flexible subscription package. Come share in the fun and excitement of theatre on the hilltop. Tickets to Pippin are on hold pending our determination of new performance dates. Please see the notice below regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19 potential disruptions. Stay safe, friends. We look forward to seeing you soon!

OUR 2019-2020 SEASON *ON HOLD*

Due to the emergence of Coronavirus/COVID-19 in the United States, St. Edward's University has moved to remote learning for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. In addition, our upcoming production of  Pippin, which was scheduled to open April 16, has been postponed to a date yet to be determined.

The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, guest artists and community is our highest priority. We are actively monitoring public health recommendations from local, state and national authorities and working closely with the St. Edward’s University administration to determine how upcoming events may be impacted.

Once we have set new performance dates, we will provide updates here, on our FaceBook page, and through our press outlets. We will also contact subscribers directly to simplify making reservations. 

We deeply appreciate your partnership with St. Edward’s University and Mary Moody Northen Theatre and thank you for your understanding as we all negotiate this uncharted territory. We will continue to stay in touch with you about upcoming events and plans through the days and weeks to come. Please stay safe. We send our love to you and yours. Please feel free to reach out if we can be of assistance.

With an infectiously unforgettable score from musical theatre giant Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Wicked), Pippin tells the story of one man’s journey to find his Corner of the Sky and true source of happiness. Since its 1972 Broadway debut, Pippin has garnered 23 Tony nominations and four Tony Awards, including Best Direction, Best Choreography and Best Lighting and Best Musical Revival. 48 years later, this magical musical continues to captivate and appeal to the young at heart throughout the world. Featuring guest artists Mary Agen Cox, Marisa Pisano and Rick Roemer.
