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!

THIS SUMMER… ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!

Do you love to act? Then you’ve come to the right place. Summer Theatre Camp at MTYP is full of opportunities to use your imagination, get into character, and learn the art of acting. And if you’re ready to branch out and try your hand at musical theatre, making movies, or animation, we’ve got just the programs for you.

The experience of drama is constantly surprising. Strangers become friends, stories come alive, and magic is created out of thin air. It’s amazing to watch young actors grow in skill and confidence through the practice of drama, and it’s equally wonderful to watch community being created before our eyes. It’s what keeps us instructors coming back.

So join us, and be part of the magic at MTYP’s beautiful home at The Forks in downtown Winnipeg. Sign up for a week, or two, or all nine! You might just astonish yourself.
