Broadway at Iroquois

Broadway at Iroquois, formerly known as Music Theatre Louisville, is a non-profit organization in Louisville, Kentucky, dedicated to producing, presenting, and developing diverse and affordable entertainment. The company stages several shows during the summer at Iroquois Amphitheater in Iroquois Park.

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, IN. 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.

2003 Season

*"The Wizard of Oz"

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".
