‘BEST YOUTH THEATRE IN HAMPSHIRE’
It’s official – Prop Box are THE Best Youth Theatre in Hampshire! We have worked hard to achieve a high standard of teaching whilst still maintaining our close knit family vibe. We have watched our numbers steadily grow post pandemic and we believe this is down to the welcoming and friendly group culture we have created. This has also seen us receive many enquiries from families of children with additional needs. We try our best to accommodate every child and aim to work with parents to give the best experience we can. It is documented that drama is an amazing tool to help children (not just those with additional needs) overcome shyness, anxiety and helps them grow in confidence, build social skills and learn how to work as a team. We are incredibly proud to accept the award from Southern Business Enterprise Magazine and if you are looking for an amazing, friendly, inclusive and professional drama group – drop us an email and find out how you can join THE BEST YOUTH THEATRE IN HAMPSHIRE!!

ROBINSON CRUSOE AUDITION
Our Pantomime this year will be Robinson Crusoe and we invite anyone aged 8 and over to come along. The audition will be a relaxed, informal process and there is no need to prepare anything. Our skilled director and tutors will run a series of dance and drama activities to assist with the casting, however, anyone wishing to be considered for a lead role should make this known to the team. Lead character auditionees will be asked to sing a short verse/chorus of a song of your choice – just so we can hear your voice and singing potential, so choose a song you know well and feel comfortable singing! Don’t worry we will support you all the way and vocal coaching is included every week to help improve everyone’s vocal skiils! There are also plenty of ensemble roles available for those who don’t feel ready yet to take on a lead role and we guarantee you will have lots of fun and makes new friends during the 12 week rehearsal!
Rehearals start from Friday 16 September 6:00-9:00pm and will run every Friday evening at the same times during term time.
The show will be performed in December and we will confirm the dress rehearsal and performance dates and times in the coming weeks.
CAST LIST WILL BE ADDED HERE….

Prop Box isn’t just a drama group, it’s a family”
That is what our children and parents tell us. We are an inclusive drama group with family values at our core, where we know each and every child personally and invest in helping them thrive and grow!
Our members not only have fun and learn a great deal about the performing arts, they also learn valuable life skills, form unique friendships and grow in confidence as they socialise and make memories with their friends!
We offer excellent rates of pay and a wide variety of opportunities to run classes and workshops both in term time and school holidays. We also run a performing arts undergraduate scheme providing students with the chance to gain teaching skills and experience, offering well above the minimum wage.
Drama & Dance Tutors – Cover work
Prop Box has multiple classes every week on Wednesday and Friday evening and Saturday mornings. We run drama, film and Musical Theatre classes every week during term time and offer half and one day workshops during the holidays. As a Prop Box tutor you will be as full of energy and enthusiasm as the children you are teaching and should be confident teaching both small and large groups of children. Our Pocket Prop Box group is our entry level drama class and aims to spark imagination through drama games and movement, and our MT class is three hours of non-stop dance, drama and singing! We do have some children with additional needs, so any experience in this area would be an advantage, but not essential. Full training and support will be given.
