Teaching Artist Program
Manayunk Theatre Company's newest venture is our education initiative: Mayanunk Theatre Reach-ED. Our Mayanunk Theatre Reach-ED Program seeks to provide educational experiences in Theatrical Arts to students in Manayunk and the surrounding areas.
Our Teaching Artists have advanced degrees in a variety of theatre techniques from some of the strongest training programs around the United States. They have also acquired professional experience from Philadelphia theatres and schools, such as the Walnut Street Theatre and (another Theatre/school that someone else has worked at that people would know or we can do Enchantment Theatre or Philadelphia Young Playwrights since I work with both). Each Teaching Artist has their own experiences and ideas to bring to their classrooms, making the Mayanunk Theatre Reach-ED Program a well-rounded and accessible process for students. Our Teaching Artists lead classes during and after-school, in subjects such as: Acting, Improvisation, Text Analysis, Playwriting, Movement and Dance, and Technical Theatre.
After a successful residency with Northern Children Services, we are thrilled to announce that we will be offering a Dance Class in the near future at North Light Community Center! Stay tuned for further updates about Mayanunk Theatre

The Commedia Cinderella
The Commedia Cinderella ws a comic retelling of the classic Cinderella fairy tale perfect for families of all ages. This version of that beloved tale was brought to life in the commedia dell’arte style by a vagabond cast of characters: Columbine, Arlequin, Punchin and Rosetta. These traveling Italian actors bring to life this trunk show with the addition of a Holiday Ball! Audience members were encouraged to BYOB (Bring your own blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, or whatever else you need to get comfy)!
Hosted as part of Manayunk.com's Holiday extravaganza, this show was accompanied by local shops hosting crafts before and after the show.
