“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 Forks Market.
Located at the junction of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, The Forks (also known as Nestawaya in Cree) has been a meeting place for over 6,000 years. Indigenous Peoples traded at The Forks, followed by European fur traders, Scottish settlers, railway pioneers and tens of thousands of immigrants. Come experience an exceptional array of dining options, fantastic local makers and retailers, a constantly changing slate of entertainment and events, and many unique attractions that encompass the site’s natural, historic and built 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.
