Drama Outreach Program

Theatre Workshops

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

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. In-person workshops can be customized within the parameters of physical distancing; many of our workshops can be enjoyed outdoors; and online options are also available!

Our workshops aim to inspire each student’s empathy, confidence, and sense of community, all within a fun 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 months, we want to find a plan that works for you!

Please consult the following list to find the programs that inspire you! To book a workshop, please email MTYP’s Drama Outreach Coordinator, Matthew Armet, at [email protected]
