Malanda Youth Theatre (MYT)

 This year MTC is offering theatre experiences specifically for the youth in our community. We invite all 9 to 18 year olds to become members of the all new Malanda Youth Theatre (MYT). This group will meet for the first time on Wednesday 8th February from 3.30-5.30pm at the Majestic Theatre. Membership is $10 per year.

A group of 6 experienced members of MTC, led by Gill Harrington, plan to develop stagecraft and performance skills with a view to presenting shows. Planning meetings have been under way these past couple of weeks to address the possible interests and skills of all ages who become members of MYT. Come along – see what you can contribute to MYT and see what we can do with you. Together we will be able to create lots of opportunities for performance and developing stage craft both onstage and offstage.
