A BRIEF HISTORY

Mercury Theatre Company is an award-winning, non-profit theater company with a mission to create extraordinary theatrical experiences, and to advance theatre as a means of educating, challenging and inspiring the Greater Cleveland community and its young people through family-friendly programming of rarely seen and premier works, innovative staging, and through its educational outreach and My First Musical program.
