M.A.P.'s  Programs

Summer Theatre Workshop

The Summer Theater Workshop is M.A.P.'s largest and most intense program, lasting 5-6 weeks.  Participants go through an audition process, and all are given a role in the production.   For those not interested in being in the spotlight, technical and behind-the-scene positions are available.   Following weeks of instruction, guidance, costuming, set and prop building, and rehearsal, the cast and crew are ready to raise the curtain!

Live Nativity &

Christmas Production

M.A.P. enjoys celebrating the spirit of the season with the community.  For many years, M.A.P. brought a Live Nativity to the Depot District (Bay St.Louis) and St. Thomas Church (Diamondhead).  In December 2021, M.A.P. performed a holiday play, Everyone's Christmas Story, at St. Thomas and at the McLeod State Park's Holiday Festival.

Starship Saturdays

M.A.P. first began with a flagship program called Starship Saturdays.  The goal of the program was to introduce students to elements of the theater through a series of Saturday workshops, resulting in a production.  In a 2019 Starship Saturday workshop series,  students wrote their own play (Mississippi pirate themed) and were responsible for all of the production and design elements.
