Stay tuned as we prepare to return in 2024...

The York Theatre Company is one of the few theatres in the world dedicated to developing new musicals as well as rediscovering forgotten musical theatre gems. MTTP capitalizes on The York's robust development pipeline to bring working professionals, performers, AND writers in to work with eager and dedicated theater students. Our rigorous yet nurturing programs offer training in singing, acting and movement and include master classes with some of New York’s top theatre artists.

Our connection with some of the most exciting writers in the field allow us to create brand new musical theatre in real time. Programs culminate in a showcase performance on an Off-Broadway stage. We currently offer a Summer and Winter Intensive for high school, college, and recent college students from across the nation.

We often invite current and past students to perform for special events throughout the year. In fact, in 2018, 2019 and 2021, several of our students performed at the annual Oscar Hammerstein Award Gala honoring Broadway legends Susan Stroman, André De Shields and Richard Maltby, Jr. & David Shire.
