Finding the Right Path for Your Child

Miami Childrens Theater is South Florida's leading young person's theater. With 22 years of experience and numerous awards, MCT has developed an impeccable reputation for training young theater students. We were really honored last year when Backstage.com listed  us as one of the Top 5 Places Every Young Actor in Florida Should Know.  (You can read the article here ).  Miami Childrens Theater  has guided hundreds of young actors to working careers over the year and we had the immeasurable pleasure of seeing five MCT alumni star in Broadway shows in 2017.  We believe the secret of our success is a caring, talented faculty, time-tested curriculum and and the infrastructure to offer different plays and courses to match each child's experience  level.

Try Mainstage Junior!

Mainstage Jr. is  a great class for beginners or students a with little theater experience. It is the best of the both worlds: a class in which students learn the basics of theater by....performing in a show. We feel it is important for young actors to "learn by doing".  We recommend students six to 13 to participate in Mainstage Jr. The class is NOT audition-based  - everyone who signs up gets a role. The premise of Mainstage Jr. is simple: we meet twice a week from 4:30 to 6 for approximately twelve weeks, rehearsing a show. And the end of the session Mainstage Jr. students perform for friends and families. We're talking a real show - lights, sets, costumes and sound.
