“Take a child to theatre. Take them all the time.” – Huffington Post.
MTYP is located at 2 Forks Market Road. We are directly across from the main Forks Market.
The Forks is Winnipeg’s meeting place and number one tourist attraction, with more than four million visitors annually. Located at the junction of the Assiniboine and Red rivers, The Forks has been a meeting place for over 6,000 years, where early Indigenous peoples traded, followed by European fur traders, settlers and immigrants. It’s an all-season destination, with an ever-changing slate of entertainment and events, great shopping and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and man-made features.
Manitoba Theatre for Young People is proud to make its home at the historic location of The Forks in Winnipeg, a traditional meeting place for centuries.
