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!

It is a privilege to work with a team that is committed to the mission of bringing the arts to society at large. We welcome you to the 2016-17 Toi Toi season of events.
 
For its sixth season, Toi Toi has a full programme ahead, welcoming young and old to the world of the arts. It continues to offer a Youth Theatre and Youth Opera experience to a number of young actors and singers. Both these groups have an exciting year ahead with the Youth Opera presenting Orpheus in the Underworld at the beginning of the season and the Youth Theatre performing at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh.
 
This year’s content builds on the success of the last five years but continues to venture into new ground, introducing new performances such as the Toi Toi Jazz for Kids. We have no doubt that the programme’s versatility will strike a chord with all our audience members; Teatru Manoel continues to think of its patrons, past and present. Keep an eye out for the Toi Toi Talks prior to evening events and the Toi Toi Send a Song programme, taking live music to the elderly.
 
We hope that you will enjoy the season together with our dedicated team of directors, actors, tutors, musicians, dancers, and practitioners who are so committed to bringing nothing but the best to you, our audience. We look forward to welcoming you together with your friends and family to Toi Toi!
 
The Toi Toi Schools Project
 
This year Teatru Manoel is addressing schools around Malta and ensuring that the opportunity is there for all children from different backgrounds. With the help of sponsors and government assistance we are offering more than 50 performances, welcoming schools to the theatre as well as curriculum-based interactive performances and workshops that will be held within schools.
 
Join us in our efforts to encourage as many schools as possible by spreading the word whenever and wherever you can.

Pre-concert 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.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 Teatru Manoel’s productions.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Toi Toi Travels

This season Toi Toi is visiting retirement homes, taking LIVE MUSIC to those who cannot come to us. If you wish to send-a-song to someone special, get in touch.
