Middlesbrough Youth Theatre (MYT)
Middlesbrough Youth Theatre is a charity and leaders work mainly on a voluntary basis this makes us very accessible to all students who have a passion for performing arts whatever their background. MYT has been running for 60 years and is based at Toft House as the youth section of MLTltd, with over 100 students from Middlesbrough and surrounding areas.
Our leaders are all trained and specialists in their field but most of all have a love of performing arts and want to pass their knowledge on to local students, this not only helps them as performers but with confidence, team work and life skills.
Once a year MYT perform at Middlesbrough Theatre. We try to make this a professional production and have a fantastic team who make this happen for the students. This is a big cost to MYT so we rely very much on fundraising to help with costumes / makeup / lighting / sound and our time in the Theatre.
Giving our students the chance to take part in this production and experience working in a professional theatre is for us a very proud moment, but the proudest time is when we watch them grow into confident young adults.
With your help we can take a little pressure away when putting on a show and helping towards cost of costumes for them.
