As always our goal is to provide audiences with the very best talent of all levels. To provide comics with a professional and friendly work environment. To provide a place to nurture developing talent. MUTHE returns with a cultural play, Love of Honor next semester. The play will incorporate new and old members of the group and the cultural dances to be performed by MUTHE cultural Troupe. With a membership of close to 60, MUTHE will be out to prove their worth after a grand launch that featured 'True Lies' as their very first. For those who watched True Lies, can really agree with me that it was indeed a play of the semester. 'Love of Honor' will be MUTHE's second to be premiered in the UNiversity Hall.

True Lies, probably Mzuni's play of the Semester by Mzuzu University TheatreHeights Ensemble (MUTHE) was taken to St Johns Scool of Nusing within the outskirts of Mzuzu City. Though the patronage was low, MUTHE gave its few patrons the best of theatre they had anticipated. The cast that included Edwin Kanyemba, Naomi Nyasulu (pictured), Davie Nyirenda, Steve Moloseni, Mirriam Mkamanga, Limbani Banda, Richard Kayenda, Linda Mpando (who replaced Rabecca Tembo), Auscar Njikho, Naomi Banda, Jean Luhanga and Annie Kachali was just marvellous to watch.
This is MUTHE's second perfomance since her launch on 18th May 2008.

One of the founders of MUTHE, Gift Chingwalu congratulated Steve for his achievement and looks forward to more award in the MUTHE family. Steve has starred in two production so far and was just as witty as his looks.
This is the first award towards MUTHE after Prof Soko launched the theatre group on 18th May 2008.
SUNDAY May 18th, 2008 saw the birth of a new theatre outfit at Mzuzu University, Malawi’s second public University. The group known simply as MUTHE which is acronym for Mzuzu University TheatreHeights Ensemble was officially launched in style by Sir. Boston Soko and Associate Professor Muzipansi Shumba of the deparment of Languages and Literature at a function in the University Hall that was spiced up with several activities that included drama performance by the new theatre group. CELTEL, Malawi’s leading mobile service company sponsored the launch. One of the Trustees, Mr. Sydney Ngwira said that MUTHE is a nonprofit professional theatre group dedicated to presenting the finest works of drama to all audiences, focusing particularly on works rarely or never seen in this region. Our aim is to throw light on the art and culture of diverse nations, while providing our patrons with high quality entertainment.
Mr. Ngwira also said that MUTHE seeks to do this in an intimate theatrical setting, promoting a close, immediate connection between audience and performer, with the emphasis on the narrative and performative, rather than technical values. Our goal is to provide our audience intellectual as well as emotional stimulation, and to focus on issues of contemporary social and political concern that go beyond the psychological drama of the individual.
MUTHE is based at Mzuzu University, where it is committed to making first rate theatre in a city where culture and the arts have traditionally found it hard to survive and serve this multi-cultural community. Membership for the theatre group is open to members of staff and students as well as other outsiders who have passion for theatre. The group is yet to introduce itself to Lilongwe and Blantyre audiences according to one of the founders Gift Chingwalu. More information can be accessed online at http://www.muthe.bravehost.com/
