Theatre Workshops

At MTYP, we believe nurturing your imagination is one of the most valuable experiences you can enjoy in this world.

Our workshops aim to inspire each student’s empathy, confidence, and sense of belonging, all within a playful and welcoming environment. Whether you’re interested in a one-time session to spark your students’ creativity, or looking for an engaging long-term program over the course of several weeks, we want to find a plan that works for you!

In these uncertain times, giving young people the opportunity to express themselves creatively is as important as ever, and we are committed to finding safe and flexible options to meet the needs of your students during COVID-19 and beyond. With in-person and online options available, we can meet you where you are, or welcome you to our beautiful home at The Forks.

Please consult the following list to find the programs that inspire you! To book, email MTYP’s Drama Outreach Coordinator, Heather Russell-Smith, at [email protected], or call her at (204) 947-0394 ext 227. Let’s imagine together!
