Marian St Theatre for Young People


The creative arts are the glue of our community. Children’s theatre in particular brings together people from different backgrounds, generations and beliefs and bridges cultural, social and economic divides.

For 50 years and three generations now, we have been providing children's theatre performed by young people. Yes, some of our former students are now grandparents whose children and grandchildren are still involved.

Through the programs, young people are involved in acting, singing, puppetry, physical theatre, technical theatre, and creative mentorships under the direction of professional theatre artists. The friendships they make last a lifetime, and provide a unique support network that sees them through their transformative and difficult teenage years.

However, to give young people the support they deserve, we need to engage and make partnerships with artists and educators of the highest quality. Quality costs money. Therefore we survive on the generous support of individuals like yourself. 

The support of our donors helps maintain an accessible organisation which fosters young people’s creative expression and educates Australia’s future professional artists. Through you, children and young people can have access to art that is age appropriate, challenging and fun and serves their emotional, artistic and educational needs.


Because voice – young people need a safe space to develop their expressive and creative voices. Young people look to a company that believes in them, values their ideas and aspires to produce the highest quality work.

Because tribe – young people want and need a safe place to fit in, to find their feet, and their place in the world.

Because creativity – young people need a place to create, make and experiment.

Because art – young people deserve access to the highest quality art, artists, experience and process.

Because imagination – young people deserve a place to imagine and reimagine the world they live in.

Because spirit – because MSTYP engenders and emboldens the spirit of young people. 


MSTYP is a not-for-profit organization with charitable status. We are reliant on the support from private donations to continue to provide for young people in the community.
