The MTM Players at Post 455 formed two summers ago in an effort to bring another avenue of fundraising to the local American Legion, according to the press release.

Founder and director Rob Michael Lasky brought his 25-plus years of experience as an actor and director in professional and local community theater productions to the project, according to the press release. The MTM Players is produced solely by the McKaig-Test-Mullen American Legion Post 455 Ways and Means Committee. All proceeds go toward veterans programs, veterans and their families.
