Welcome to the MLO Youth Page. MLO Youth is a sub group of Monklands Light Opera are open to all young people from Primary 5 to S4. We were founded in November 2016 to provide a place for young people with an interest in acting, singing and dancing to meet and make friends and have fun at the same time!
Our aim is to promote youth involvement in drama and theatre activities. We also to encourage and facilitate the development skills related to theatre and drama throughout the Lanarkshire area.
Our members will have the opportunity to rehearse from November to April each year and take part in regular productions. Our students have recently performed their second production High School Musical Jr in April 2018.
