    About this event

    YMCA of Three Rivers and MT Space are thrilled to invite members of the Waterloo Region community to attend the public showcase of the Newcomer Theatre Project on May 1st at 6:30pm at Kitchener Public Library - Queen St. Main Branch in the theatre.

    About the Newcomer Youth Theatre Project

    The Newcomer Youth Theatre Project is an after-school program facilitated by MT Space in partnership with YMCA of Three Rivers for high school aged newcomers in Waterloo Region.

    This free program offers introductions to multi-disciplinary arts education in a welcoming environment, guided by local arts professionals and leaders, and caps off with performances showcasing the youth’s creative work.

    By developing skills in performing arts, leadership, language, and collaboration, the youth work together to explore their own artistic voices while developing the skills and confidence to tell their own stories, and build community.

    MT Space

    Since 2004, MT Space has maintained a commitment to working with artists from Indigenous, immigrant, refugee, and other marginalized and racialized communities. We have challenged the preconceptions of theatre to create, produce, and present work that is accessible and affordable to low income families, while creating a space for marginalized voices to be heard.
