2019 Community Feature: Manitoba Theatre for Young People


Manitoba Theatre for Young People is Western Canada’s largest theatre for young audiences. MTYP’s venue at the Forks is specifically built for the development, production and presentation of work for young audiences. Equity, diversity and inclusion are factored into every casting decision at MTYP; the company encourages submissions from artists of all genders, ethnicities and abilities.

MTYP’s hope is to instill a love of the arts in young people that will accompany them for the rest of their lives. Our aim is to create a safe space for our audiences and students, where they can truly be themselves. MTYP is safe space for LGBTTQ* youth, where we will stand up for our students and respect their preferred pronouns. MTYP encourages all audiences and students to be brave, and empowers them to take action to affect our world.
