Mayflower Musical Youth Theatre (Mayflower MYT) is a unique way to learn theatre skills, be involved in performances throughout the year and get involved with Mayflower Theatre. We enjoy involving young people in the arts and think it is vital to their artistic development, whether they are joining in as a hobby or wish to pursue an artistic career.
Mayflower MYT’s programme will develop the skills of all our participants in singing, dancing & acting. Over the course of the year all participants will have an opportunity to gain an Arts Award. These are accredited awards that focus on developing artistic skills and knowledge of the artistic world.
Mayflower MYT has grown every year and we are building on that success this year to bring you the best possible offer!
Mayflower MYT consists of three groups:
Limelights: School years 6-7 Tuesdays 18:00-19:45
Footlights: School years 8-9 Tuesdays 19:45-21:30
Spotlights: School and college years 10-13 Mondays 18:00-19:45
Each of these groups will perform at least once in the year and show-back once a term. These groups shall focus on developing drama skills and will be linked with the visiting companies that form Mayflower Theatre’s programme. This coming year we will link with Wicked, Shrek, Dick Whitington, Beauty and the Beast, The Girl on the Train, Jersey Boys, Horrible Histories, The Great Gatsby and Matilda.
In addition to these exciting opportunities, the members of Mayflower MYT will get a chance to audition to be a part of our annual production. The production will take place during May half term and shall rehearse separately from the regular sessions listed above on Thursday evenings. This means that if you are in the production you also come to the regular sessions so that you don’t miss any opportunities! Auditions to get into the production will be held towards the end of the autumn term.
Mayflower MYT gives local young people the chance to:
• Learn new skills
• Make new friends
• Achieve an Arts Award
Membership of Mayflower MYT will also entitle you to:
• 10% discount on any other education workshops
• Annual backstage tour of Mayflower Theatre
• Advance notice of any casting taking place in the area that we are aware of
• Trips, outings and unique opportunities
• Mayflower Theatre Youth Membership
• Mayflower MYT members will also receive a Mayflower MYT t-shirt.
