Event details

Mayflower Engage run weekly Youth Theatre sessions in drama, musical theatre, and production arts for young people.

Our 8 Youth Theatre groups (including Mayflower Juniors) give young people the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new people, and work with experienced theatre practitioners in a fun, supportive and inclusive environment.

Youth Theatre members are given the opportunity to perform in Youth Theatre productions and at various events throughout the year. Recent performances include ‘Stop the Traffik‘, Mela FestivalWhat’s Next Southampton? and Southampton’s People’s Pride.

We are delighted to see the return of our Production Arts group for young people aged 15-18 interested in technical theatre.

Mayflower Youth Theatre is for all young people and we offer a bursary scheme to enable everyone to take part. Our bursaries cover half the cost of the standard fee, and support those who would otherwise be unable to attend. Once you have secured a place through the booking path you will receive the bursary application form.

We also offer FREE taster sessions which you can book by calling the Box Office on 02380 711811.

Groups 4, 6 and 8 have a musical theatre focus and Groups 5 and 9 have a drama focus. All sessions take place at MAST Mayflower Studios.

  • Weekly sessions during term time
  • Performance opportunities
  • Show trips to productions at MAST Mayflower Studios and Mayflower Theatre
