MAD RIVER THEATER WORKS IS A PROFESSIONAL TOURING theater company WITH ROOTS DEEP IN THE FLAT FARM COUNTRY OF THE MIDWEST. WE CREATE PLAYS THAT COMBINE MUSIC AND DRAMA TO TELL STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE FROM THE BACK ROADS AND SMALL TOWNS OF AMERICA.

We believe that theater can make a difference.   Our plays, rooted in American History, examine the choices we face in a complex world. In particular, our work focuses on the importance of Culture and Community.  Through theater we strive to challenge racism, xenophobia, sexism and intolerance.
