Summer School 2018 began with a day of physical theatre. Led by Emily Wachter, our students played around with physical methods of storytelling. They produced both comedic versions of well-known stories as well as Frantic Assembly style, emotional movement pieces. Days Two and Three were given to film-making. Amy Whitestone, ex-MYT, led a project in which the students experimented with cameras and made their own short films which will be available to view on our social media platforms – COMING SOON!
Many thanks to Tim, Emily and Amy for a terrific three days and to our brilliant MYT students who are always a pleasure to spend time with.
Next up, the beginning of Connections 2019 on September 6th.

Masque Youth Theatre enjoyed a terrific day at Northampton Active in Abington Park on Wednesday August 1st. This is a free event for primary school aged children, organised by Trilogy Leisure, where community groups put on free activities. A small MYT cast (Sam, Nancy, James and Tim) performed the story of Little Red Riding Scarf four times through the day and gave out flyers to children and parents. My thanks go to Nancy, Sam and Tim for giving up their time to promote MYT.
MYT will be taking part in NT Connections 2019. If you are aged between 13 and 19 and you fancy joining the group, get in touch!
