Professional theatre training for children in Southampton

Theatretrain Southampton welcomes aspiring performers from Southampton and surrounding areas who want to learn how to take their ideas and feelings and express them through acting, dancing and singing. Students also take part in performances locally and nationally.

Theatretrain Southampton is more than a drama club!

Theatretrain Southampton offers professional theatre training for 4-18 years old in a way that is both fun and effective. More than a drama club, a dance school or a singing group, our performing arts classes give children and young people a place to explore the world and create performances. This process gives them life skills that will help them whether they want a career in the performing arts or the confidence to thrive in the real world. All the world’s a stage after all! 

Theatretrain Southampton Weekly Classes

Our theatre classes take place at The Richard Taunton Sixth Form College, Hill Lane, Southampton. In the Main school the three hour session has an hour each of acting, dancing and singing. So all performers learn the three disciplines and have a lot of fun along the way. Find the session for your age group below.

Main School

Classes are divided into the following age groups: 6-9 year olds, 9-12 year olds, and 13-18 year olds. These classes become rehearsals for performances later in the year.

Be part of something bigger

Theatretrain Southampton is part of a UK network of centres who have the same approach to the performing arts. This community comes together to do something unique – large scale performances in venues like the Royal Albert Hall. Our ex students and Patrons know how transformational this working together can be. Theatretrain has a huge store of unparalleled activity and constantly evolves its work.

Theatre is a great place to ask the question… what if?
