About Toi Toi


Toi Toi is Teatru Manoel’s Education Programme 

“Toi Toi” A phrase used to wish good luck to an artist, seconds before going on stage!

Life at the theatre is bustling with activity around Toi Toi which was originally launched in September 2011. Teatru Manoel has a deep commitment towards Arts Education and aspires to reach an ever-growing audience, to be enjoyed by all. Part of our mission is to also bring our younger audiences closer to the wonderful world of the Arts, inspiring them with events that cater specifically for children and young adults.

Toi Toi Talks

Pre-concert Talks are fast becoming the concert-goer’s aperitif! Intimate and light-hearted, our main speaker, Neil Briscoe White comes prepared with anecdotes, historical details and insights into the programme of the night! We look forward to these short and informative introductions to the evening’s repertoire.

Behind the Scenes – Panto & Fiddler on the Roof
The highly popular Behind the Scenes events capture all the fun, madness and spirit of theatre. Children learn the songs, meet the cast and watch in awe as all the delightful characters transform themselves through stage make-up, costumes...and a few other tricks!

Toi Toi Limited Editions
Toi Toi Limited Editions are one-off opportunities where we meet internationally acclaimed artists. Past events have included harpsichordist extraordinaire Beatrice Martin, virtuoso viola-player Gerard Caussé, the all-female French string quartet Ardeo Quartet, classical guitarist Carlos Bonell, the critically acclaimed Gypsy Devils and the Leipzig Quartet. 

Baroque Workshop for children
As part of the Valletta International Baroque Festival 2014, Toi Toi introduced different aspects of Baroque music aimed at the young. One of the festival’s highlights was the parody on Rameau’s opera, Hippolyte et Aricie. This was performed by live singers, musicians and marionettes from the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles. 

Teatru Manoel TMYT/TMYO
Both programmes aim to provide a platform for emerging dramatic and operatic talent. Weekly sessions offer valuable opportunities for young actors and singers to receive professional training through workshops and to take part in rehearsals and performances in Teatru Manoel’s productions.

During the 2013/14 season, Toi Toi will have other projects, such as Send a Song…for the Young at Heart, TMYT’s performance of ‘Club’ Żigużajg, Toi Toi Travels and Tales as well the Kreattiv collaboration.
