- Music Theatre Louisville
Music Theatre Louisville is a non-profit organization in Louisville, Kentucky, dedicated to producing, presenting, and developing diverse and affordable entertainment. Up through 2008, the company staged several shows during the summer at Iroquois Amphitheater in Iroquois Park. In 2009, the company moved to the Bomhard Theater at The Kentucky Center.
In 2008, the company officially changed its name to Broadway at Iroquois, banking on the name recognition of its Iroquois Park location. However, after its move to the Kentucky Center, they reverted to the Music Theatre Louisville moniker.

For the first time in its history, Music Theatre Louisville produced a daytime show, intended mainly for smaller children, with its limited-run matinee production of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.
The 2005 Rising Stars Production was Floyd Central High School's production of Seussical the Musical. Like the previous Rising Stars show, Seussical had also been presented at the International Thespian Festival.
In 2004, Music Theatre Louisville added a unique new feature to their lineup, the Rising Stars Program. Beginning this year, one local high school would be selected to present their production from the previous school year, on the Iroquois Amphitheatre stage, in collaboration with the MTL crew.
For the inaugural Rising Stars Program, MTL selected Crazy for You, a production of New Albany High School in nearby New Albany, Indiana. This acclaimed production had also been taken to the International Thespian Festival in Lincoln, Nebraska that same summer.
The production was so successful that the Rising Stars Program became an annual event and a favorite of MTL audiences.
After more than two years of renovation, Iroquois Amphitheatre reopened to the public in the summer of 2003. The renovation yielded (among other things) a roof over the front section of seating with multiple ceiling fans, new sound and lighting equipment, new concession areas sponsored by local vendors, a bright new show curtain, increased backstage and scene shop space, and comfortable new seats. Music Theatre Louisville marked the occasion with a premiere song-and-dance review in June 2003 before presenting their summer-long production of The Wizard of Oz.
Due to the extensive renovation of Iroquois Amphitheatre, Music Theatre Louisville produced a limited season in the summer of 2001, with only one production on a small stage set up adjacent to the amphitheatre. There was no 2002 season.
Music Theatre Louisville also presented an original Broadway Revue show on the temporary stage in 2001, entitled "Broadway Under the Stars"
