The start of something special — Building a legacy — Meadow Brook Theatre Guild — Behind the scenes — Family and community — Moving forward.
Meadow Brook Theatre (MBT) began in 1966 as part of a strategy to associate professional music and theatre with Oakland University’s academic programs. The theater became a reality when John Fernald, an internationally acclaimed director and head of London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, accepted Chancellor D.B. Varner’s invitation to establish a resident professional theatre company on the university’s campus. In January 1967, the curtain rose; nearly five decades later, MBT remains a key element of Oakland County’s cultural fabric. Many famous actors–including William Hurt, Curtis Armstrong, and Cindy Williams–have appeared on its stage.
