The History

of M.A.P.

      M.A.P. was born in the summer of 2009 in Hancock County, Mississippi, because even 4 years after Hurricane Katrina,  there were still very limited amusements, programs and organized activities for children.  M.A.P. first began with what it called “Starship Saturdays,” workshops where 40 children learned areas of theater – props, costumes, dance, chorus, improv and set building.  At the end of the session that year, the children starred in a production of “Alladin” at the Bay-Waveland Middle School.

          In the years that followed, M.A.P. continued to host its Starship Saturdays for the children of Hancock County.
