For two weeks, the Young Company middle schoolers spend their summer days making theatre here at MRT with our education staff and teaching artists–not just acting, but writing, design, and dance too.
What a gift for us to pass our love of theatre on to such talented youth! Here’s what some of them have said about their time here:
Balquis Tomoum: I really like writing. I write about many things. I write plays, stories of fake persons, and comics. Writing is my real thing, the MRT helps me to know to write scenes in the best way.
Victoria Beauchamp: Improv was my favorite thing we did at Young Company. We all worked together to give each other acting parts where a person would stand up and do improv with what the rest of the class told them to do.
Kayla Van: What I like about this program is EVERYTHING. I liked meeting new people, the exercises, especially that no one is going to judge you.
Chloe Therrien: I have to say one of my favorite things was writing plays with Nick [Gandiello, Playwright]. Nick really knows what he is doing and I felt that he taught us a lot in the time that he was with us.
