Theatre School at MTYP
Last season, the Musical Theatre Company's Into the Woods brought a twist to all the fairy tales we thought we knew, the Junior Company performed a new version of Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen, and teens put on an amazing production of Shakespeare's Hamlet. These are just a few of the great things that were accomplished last year at MTYP; students of all ages astonished us at every turn.
Along with a wide range of courses for students age 3 - 19 in creative drama, acting, film, puppetry, and musical theatre, we have identified some exciting new challenges for our students to take on in the coming year. Students in film classes and the Musical Theatre Company will learn the essentials of writing and recording music to use in their projects and performances. Those ambitious teens ready to push themselves past the borders of what they already know can sign up for our new Playwriting course. And onstage in our theatre, the Young Company will to life the tragedy of Antigone, first performed in Greece 2500 years ago, thus conjuring one of the theatre's most ancient spells. Each cast member will participate in the design and construction of the masks and costumes needed for the production.
If you want to have fun trying something new, while developing self-confidence and performance skills, you'll find what you're looking for here at MTYP.
We look forward to serving you with courtesy and excellence in the coming year - please drop us a line and let us know how things are going.
Sincerely, your theatre school staff:

The thrill of performing is a big part of what makes our theatre program fun. Students in all classes have the opportunity to present their work to an audience. Young people ages 9 and up are invited to audition for one of MTYP's student companies; The Junior Company, Musical Theatre Company, Shakespeare Company, and Young Company perform on stage with full costumes, props, lighting, and scenery provided by our professional production team.
Young people involved in theatre activities grow in confidence and social skills and develop their capacity to express themselves creatively. Many tell the story of how being involved in a theatre production was the best time they ever had.
