Building confidence and creativity
Marian Street Drama Centre inspires creative expression and teaches skills in theatre to young people. Established over forty-five years ago, the school offers drama for ages five to adults in a professional theatre company environment.
Auditions for the Children's Theatre Productions
We invite students over twelve years to audition for our Children's Theatre productions. We have two or three children's productions each year, often based on classic fairy tales (like The Pied Piper or The Little Mermaid) or more contemporary stories (like Danny in the Toy Box by Richard Tulloch).
This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for young people to experience working in a professional theatre environment led by experienced industry professionals. Young people can discover their creative potential through participation in all areas of theatre, through acting, stage management and lighting design. Young people assist in running the front-of-house and coffee bar as well. Over the twenty-four performance season they learn to maintain a professional attitude, discover a relationship with different audiences and develop a respect and understanding of theatre production.
Often students who work on these productions go on to work in the theatre industry in a variety of roles, from acting to directing, to technical and backstage.
Students are given audition dates by their tutors throughout the year.
Our tutors are qualified industry professionals and experienced teachers who introduce students to physicality and vocality, improvisation and text work. Students work together in groups and also by themselves to create pieces of theatre.
MSTYP is committed to developing mature work for young people by young people in collaboration with professional theatre artists.
