Marian Street Theatre for Young People (MSTYP) is one of the oldest continually-running childrens theatre and drama schools in Australia. We are a not-for-profit organisation creating quality theatre productions and drama classes for young people from 3-18 years old. We believe in the power of drama to develop strength, creativity, courage and joy. Based in Northern Sydney, we are now also offering interactive online classes, so you can join us from anywhere in Australia!

Our teaching artists are qualified industry professionals and experienced teachers. We run a range of weekly classes during term time, with various age groups and experience levels. These classes cover voice, movement, improvisation, character development and script analysis, ending the year with an open class or performance. During the holidays we have an exciting selection of workshops to keep the creative juices flowing, from comedy to script analysis, Shakespeare to creating YouTube videos. And we have options for one-on-one online tutorial classes with some of our teaching artists. 

We want to give our students as many opportunities as possible - to perform in shows, have careers in the arts, be a part of the MSTYP community, develop a life-long love for theatre, and make friends for life. Students aged 12+ are invited to audition for our Children's Theatre productions. This is an incredibly exciting opportunity for young people to experience working in a professional theatre environment led by experienced industry professionals. Often students who work on these productions go on to work in the theatre industry in a variety of roles, from acting to directing, to technical and backstage.
