Check us out on Facebook.

To enrich the lives of youth through participation in dance, music, visual arts, theatre workshops and main stage productions;
To facilitate youth’s development of life skills such as problem solving, decision-making and team work;
To offer high quality theatrical productions to the community.
 Children with special needs are also included as equals in MCYT programs and productions.  Unlike most programs that audition and accept only the most talented children, MCYT accepts all children and guides them toward becoming creative and talented leaders who advance to adult theatre programs and other professions. 

Get ready to go back in time to the world of Charles Dickens,

tweaked, of course, by Hollywood.

This fall’s MCYT Oliver Production will begin with a three week audition workshop, in which actors will be grouped according to age/grade and will work on appropriate songs, dances and dialogue from the musical. This is considered part of the audition process. After final casting, rehearsals will follow a similar schedule. The total program is 15 weeks.

Rehearsal groups, which may overlap,
are basically three groups:
Orphan ages
Pickpocket ages
Adult ages

There are many roles available for the show, but the greatest part of the production will be the large musical numbers.
Contact us for more information and a registration form.
