NVMT's Dedication to arts and community

The Neshaminy Valley Music Theatre is a not-for-profit, scholarship grant organization, incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The group was formed in 1956 as an off-shoot of a Parent-Teacher fund raising activity in the Neshaminy School District. Although NVMT is an independent community theater, the group has strong ties to the Neshaminy School District and has used the facility at the Neshaminy High School since its inception. For several years, the Music Theatre had been invited to perform our shows at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA.



Supporting future artists through scholarships

Since its founding, Neshaminy Valley Music Theatre has awarded more than $170,000 in scholarship grants to deserving students. NVMT has produced one musical show each year since 1956. The proceeds of the production contribute to a scholarship fund which is awarded to graduating seniors of the Neshaminy School District who plan to continue their studies in the fine or performing arts. Since its founding, NVMT has awarded more than $170,000 in scholarship grants to deserving students. Our most prestigious grant is the Evelyn McLean Memorial Scholarship, named for the founder of the organization. Additional scholarships are awarded annually, including the Joseph J. McGlade Memorial Scholarship, the George W. Kinsley IV Memorial Scholarship for Students of the Woodwind Instruments and the Dotti Gelenberg Memorial Scholarship as well as other grants, the number and size of which are determined by the financial success of the production.

Guiding excellence and sustainability in

musical theater

The music theatre is governed by a Board of Directors which is responsible for organizing the production, developing the directing staff and maintaining the financial stability of the group. NVMT is totally self sustaining and receives no outside financial assistance. Any and all monetary donations go directly into our scholarship fund. 



Empowering local talent in community theatre

NVMT takes pride in producing professional grade stage musicals as well as servicing the community through its scholarship grant program. Over the years, our dedication to these high standards has drawn the best talent the area has to offer. We welcome your involvement and participation in the Music Theatre and thank you for your interest in our group!
