We can’t wait to get to know the local community in Southampton! As a community based company it’s at the heart of what we do!💙
Theatretrain Southampton are bringing their production of Moana Jr. to Hanger Farm on 17 July!
Join us for an evening of song and dance on the Island of Motunui. This production will have us visiting faraway beaches and deep ocean wonders. Featuring all of our favourite songs from one of our favourite Disney movies.
Don’t miss out on this great evening of family fun entertainment:
We would just like to say how proud we are of our amazing pupils across the UK, you are all 🌟stars🌟 ! Your continued ingenuity & creativity has been really impressive & we can't wait until we can hold classes in person again. 🙌
🎼 Today, we're delighted to share with you this beautiful song,
'Angel in Disguise', written and performed by Eden of Theatretrain Southampton,
Without further ado, please, enjoy this beautiful heartfelt thank-you, to the NHS. 🌈
Remember, success in theatre means you must have knowledge of all aspects of the industry, not just musical theatre. If you're studying at A-Level or above you should observe and try and create links between European practitioners such as Antonin Artaud and Pina Bausch as this frequently come up in Drama School audition interviews.
(I don't know what the official age rating is but I do know that many students went to watch the show when it was at The National Theatre.)
Written by one of our wonderful students, Libby, who attends Theatretrain Southampton, she performed her heart out to make this video with help from her mum, and it's a cracker!
We are so in awe of our students and the talent they possess, and the originality of the lyrics to reflect the current Covid-19 crisis is just brilliant, with some humour to boot. Well done Libby, what a fantastic job you did!
his credits include: Boq (Wicked, West End), Eddie (Blood Brothers, UK Tour) and Peter Pan (Peter Pan). If you have any questions you would like to ask Joe then please email them to: [email protected]
Good luck to all you poppets continuing your Theatre train journey 🎭

✨ Tell us a little about your business: I opened in my birth city with a view to move down there but got used to doing the commute so I've been driving the 3 hours each way for 8 years! It's been a challenge to grow the centre from so far away and I have to carefully plan any local community performances/workshops events because I'm so far away but the hard work is finally paying off!
✨ Parking available: Yes plenty of free parking
✨ Favourite thing about your centre: Constantly looking for projects which are out of the ordinary for our students. Exchanges to Malta, performed with Collabro, spent the day filming activities on Royal Caribbean ship. Love all the fun extras!
✨ Why should we come here: High quality local shows with a large investment in costumes, scenery and technical equipment to give the children a truly professional experience in a professional theatre. Attention paid to every single student with performance opportunities shared out as equally as possible between everyone so that they all get to have a go (rather than the same people being chosen every time!) All the teachers are highly trained and experienced.
✨ Any plans/events coming up: Halloween flashmob / local shows in May half term. This year our Senior Group will have their own separate show to work on called 'Out of my Comfort Zone' which has only ever been done by one other group in the UK before.
