The Mount Players Youth Theatre provides an engaging environment for students in the Macedon Ranges to learn new skills, make new friends and perform on stage.
Workshops are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings during the school terms.
We offer places for youth aged 10+ spread across three age brackets:
- Group A (ages 10-12) Monday evenings, 6.30-8.00pm
- Group B (ages 13-15) Wednesday evenings, 6.30-8.00pm
- Group C (ages 16+) Wednesday evenings 8.00-9.30pm
- All workshops take place at the Mountview Theatre, 56 Smith Street, Macedon, next to Jubilee Hall.
The workshops focus on stage acting, but include script writing, make-up & costumes, backstage etiquette, and for the older group, set design and construction.
We occasionally invite guest leaders for the night, who are people with a lot of experience in a particular area of theatre. These people have often been involved with The Mount Players for many years and share their expertise.
Opportunities also arise for youth members to be involved in the major productions at the theatre, both on and off stage. Previous examples include roles on MPT's The Sound of Music, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie and The Offshore Island. Several MPYT members have also gone on to play lead roles in theatre productions as adults both at MPT and other theatres.
The MPYT is an exceptional way to boost your self-confidence and open yourself up to new experiences.
