Our two brave MYT Junior Group members are entered for their first ever LAMDA exam on Thursday January 25th. We wish them all the best.
If you have any budding actors or actresses in Years 5 to 8, we offer very reasonably priced tuition towards LAMDA exams : £6 for an hour and a half session. They get lots of individual attention. Get in touch for details.
Rehearsals are well underway for our NT Connections play, Dungeness. It is about a group of LGBTQ+ teenagers living in a semi-independent facility in Kent. Performances will be at Northampton High School on Saturday March 24th (4pm and 7pm) and at the Royal and Derngate on Sunday May 6th. More details soon …
The MYT Senior Group will be performing a play called Dungeness by Chris Thompson as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival 2018. We launch the project next Thursday. We are all very excited!
It was terrific to welcome some 7-12 year olds to Masque Youth Theatre on Thursday August 24th. We had a day of games, dressing-up, acting short scenes, dressing-up, more games and dressing-up! Hopefully this gave them a taste of what MYT is all about and hopefully we shall see them again in September. Thank you to all who came along.
The last day of Summer School saw students using everything they had practised on Days One and Two to devise a performance. How to combine puppetry and Shakespeare? Answer : a part puppet-led, part live action retelling of the story of Romeo and Juliet performed to a small, but appreciative, audience in the hall of the church as well as outside in different locations on the grounds. It was terrific to see such creativity pull seemingly random strands together into a coherent performance … and the sun shone! A massive well done to the Summer School students of 2017!
