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 &
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.
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.
