Join the Mercury Young Company!

The Mercury’s main drama company you know and love has expanded to offer more opportunities to the amazing young people we welcome through our doors each week.

MYC Performers will receive weekly training from our Mercury teaching artists, which will develop:
• Voice
• Movement
• Text analysis
• Creating a character
• Scene work
• Improvisation skills
• Acting techniques

Mercury Young Company Performers will also have access to:
• The Mercury’s dedicated learning space
• Regular performance opportunities including an end of year performance
• Open rehearsals for Mercury Productions
• Free tickets for open dress rehearsals or preview performances for Mercury Productions
• Mercury Connects – the theatre’s social network, which provides opportunities in the arts, information about events, tickets and work in the East of England.
• Mentoring from theatre staff and exclusive backstage access

Weekly from Tue 6 Sep, sessions 5.15pm – 6.15pm

MYC Bursary
We want as many young people as possible to have access to our creative activities and we do not want someone’s financial situation to be a barrier to taking part. The MYC Bursary exists to enable participants to take part in activity provided by Mercury Theatre.
