Our 2020-2021 Season
MTYP’s 2020/21 season features six exciting productions including the instant holiday classic The Velveteen Rabbit, two stories for our youngest audiences that celebrate the joy of reading, a tale about a boy who spells differently and two world premieres – both created locally. Spelling 2-5-5, which was going to close last season, will now be opening our new one and we are so thrilled to still have the opportunity to share this beautiful work with all of you.
“As a teenager, I spent a lot of time in airports, travelling back and forth from Peru to Canada,” says Pablo Felices-Luna. “I quickly learned about the sadness of parting and the pain of being away from those you love. At the same time, I learned the joy of being reunited, and I also learned that this joy cannot come about without first experiencing the sadness of the parting. Bringing you this 2020/21 season is a promise of the joy that is to come and the hope that we will soon be together with each other once more.”

Two brothers share a room, a love of comic books and a rather strict routine. Jake is on the autism spectrum; his older brother Simon has to adhere to a routine to help Jake get through the day. When a televised spelling bee contest is announced, Simon sees an opportunity to shine. Soon though, it is discovered that Jake is a great speller in a unique way and Simon must decide what’s really important to him.
