Calling Volunteer Leaders for
The Mount Players Youth Theatre in 2022
The Mount Players Youth Theatre (MPYT) is a vibrant community theatre program designed for children and young adults, aged from 10 to 19 years old and is run entirely by volunteers. The MPYT has been an active adjunct to The Mount Players since 2005 and provides opportunities for the young participants to learn a wide range of onstage and offstage theatrical skills and knowledge. All activities are based in the charming Mountview Theatre, located in Macedon.
With many of the current, long-standing MPYT leadership group indicating their unavailability to be involved next year due to other commitments, The Mount Players is now seeking interest from enthusiastic volunteers for 2022.

Production Updates August 2021
Due to Lockdown 6, The Mount Players committee has regretfully decided to refund all Love Song ticket holders due to the uncertainty of staging the production this year. We do hope to still get this lovely play onto the stage in October/November when restrictions ease.
Further to the above, due to Covid-19 uncertainty for the remainder of 2021, the Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel The Vortex, which had been scheduled for November. In doing this it allows Love Song, well into rehearsal and with the set almost complete, to have room to be staged at a later date. The Committee would like to thank the director, Andrew Meldrum and the cast and crew for their patience since May 2020, when The Vortex was originally scheduled to run. Obviously, there is great disappointment as lines were learned, costumes organised and the set designed and we thank you all for your understanding.
