Teatru Manoel Youth Theatre

TMYT - Teatru Manoel Youth Theatre

The goal of Teatru Manoel Youth Theatre is to nurture the most talented young artists through training and performance opportunities.

At the moment, we have 21 enthusiastic, dedicated young individuals attending the weekly workshops under the direction of Denise Mulholland.

The course also introduces the students to different aspects of theatre including puppet making, lighting and sound, scenery and musical theatre. Visiting professionals in the field have included Polly March, Simone Spiteri, Jimmy Grima, Sandra Mifsud, Paul Harris and Marcelle Teuma 

Entrance requirements:

• Acceptance to the TMYT is by audition only. 

• Applicants must be aged between 16 and 25 years old at the time of audition. 

If you have always dreamt of being on the stage of Malta’s National Theatre and are aged between 16 and 25 years of age, look out for our next call for applications on this website or Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/teatru.manoel.


Past Performances:

Peculiar Children 

In February 2013, the group performed ‘Peculiar Children’, a stunning, new theatre piece featuring imaginative props, puppets and an original score to a spellbound audience. A review by the Times of Malta can be found here.


In November 2013 the group performed 'CLUB' at St. James Cavalier as part of the Ziguzajg Festival. Part of the group travelled to Glasgow in July 2014 to perform in the Tin Forest International Theatre Festival during the Commonwealth Games. 

The Three Sunsets

The group performed their own devised piece "The Three Sunsets" during the 2014 Żigużajg Festival which they repeated on the main Teatru Manoel stage in May 2015.


Another imaginative and thought-provoking theatrical production completely devised by the performers in which they combine their exciting variety of skills and talents to tackle the lives of people who are classed as “rubbish” by society. Performed on the main Teatru Manoel stage in May 2016.
