On Sunday, April 28, at 2 pm, directly following the 1 pm performance of The Pa’akai We Bring, MTYP will host a panel discussion on Indigenous Creation for Young People.

The discussion will be moderated by award-winning playwright Michaela Washburn, who co-wrote Frozen River. She is joined by Frozen River co-playwright, Joelle Peters, Artistic Director of Native Earth Performing Arts, along with BC-based Métis playwright Erin Macklem, as panelists. Joining them all will be Moses Goods, lead creator of The Pa’akai We Bring, along with members of the cast. This event offers an incredible opportunity to gain a deeper understanding about the work of these Indigenous artists as they share their stories and insights about creating theatre for young audiences.

Admission is free! Yes! That’s correct! Also, you do not need to have attended the show beforehand to attend this panel discussion (but you really should see this beautiful show!).

MTYP’s Musical Theatre Company presents SOMETHING ROTTEN!

Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.

Something Rotten! runs on the MTYP Mainstage April 12-14. Click the links below to buy your tickets:
