Since 1982, MTYP has been one of the largest theatres in Canada dedicated solely to children’s theatre and education. MTYP plays a key role in the development and delivery of theatre-in-education programs that concentrate on using theatre as an educational tool to illustrate and express ideas about social issues. In addition to it’s mainstage and touring activities, MTYP also operates a Theatre School where over 1,500 children and teens learn the art and craft of theatre and related disciplines, and Native Youth Theatre, which offers free classes in theatre and related disciplines to Winnipeg’s Indigenous youth. MTYP’s Drama Outreach program provides workshops, satellite programs and residencies for schools and community partners throughout Manitoba.

What is a relaxed performance?

Relaxed performances or sensory friendly performances are designed to make shows

more welcoming to audience members who may experience challenges in a regular

theatre setting. This includes people with autism spectrum disorder, learning disorders,

sensory concerns, and first-time theatregoers. But of course, all are welcome!

Upcoming dates of relaxed performances:

  • Plé: March 20th 2021, at 4:00pm

  • The Snail and the Whale: May 1st  2021 at 1:00pm
