Spring/Summer Camps

At theatre camp, students meet new friends, play drama games, learn theatre skills from professional teachers and artists, and build a show from the ground up in just one week. It’s a fantastic spring break or summer getaway!

MTYP has cancelled Spring Break Camp for March 2020.  If you had already registered, please check your email for more information.

Spring Break Full-Day Camp is five fun-filled days spent working with theatre professionals, making new friends, and building a show from the ground up. The energetic rehearsal process culminates in a performance presented on the last day of camp to an invited audience of family and friends.

IMAGINARY WORLDS

Sometimes a story bursts the boundaries of the everyday world and transports us into the realm of the fantastical. Neverland, Narnia, and Middle Earth are just a few of the amazing places writers have imagined. In this camp you will invent your own imaginary world and use it as the setting for a theatrical adventure to be performed for family and friends.

ESPECIALLY FOR AGES 5-6 PUPPETS IN WONDERLAND

Create puppets and use them in your very own version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. A great way to combine visual art with theatre performance.

FOR TEENS POLITICAL THEATRE FOR ACTIVISTS

Teens will use theatre to engage in critical thinking about current issues, and develop a voice to speak out and make a difference. Students will consider the theory and practice of influencers like Bertolt Brecht and Augusto Boal, and the techniques of agit-prop, alienation and forum theatre. On the last day of camp we’ll present an original play that engages the audience as “spect-actors” in exploring an issue chosen by the group.
