Dynamo Youth Theatre is excited to announce the launch of Dynamites a new group for 7–11 year olds

Dynamites is an explosive drama group for 7-11 year olds, the junior section of the well established Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre. Dynamites will be offering the chance for young people to have fun, build confidence, self esteem and to participate in drama games, workshops and performance-based shows.

This new Group will be led by Ryan Rock with support from experienced volunteers and will meet in The Pallant, Havant from 4.30 – 6.00pm every Monday night from January 2024. As an ex-member of Dynamo Youth Theatre, Ryan is excited to bring the skills and values he learnt to Dynamites. Ryan who is currently studying primary education is looking forward to helping children discover their own creativity and enthusiasm for the arts.

The introductory session for Dynamites will take place on Monday 8th January 2024 at The Pallant, Havant at 4.30pm after which applications for membership for Dynamites will apply at a cost of £15 a month.

Our Day Out

Some underprivileged schoolchildren are taken on a day’s outing by their teachers. The children boisterously rampage through a roadside cafe, a zoo, a castle and a beach. A joyous and humorous celebration of the joys and agonies of growing up, but also a sharp pointer to their depressing present and empty future, for a simple day out is as much as these unlucky children can expect. Our Day Out, by Willy Russell, is now studied as a GCSE text.

This amateur production of Our Day Out is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd.

Oliver! is back on

We told you we’d be back soon! And the show will go on! Following the postponement due to Covid outbreak during the pre-production of Oliver! that was due to be performed in January, we are happy to announce that the production is going ahead on Wednesday 6th of April to Saturday, the 9th of April 2022 7:30pm, plus a Saturday matinee at 2:30pm

We have kept the set and props and everyone has remembered the songs and their lines (we hope!)

We have had to move the location of the performance so it won’t be in The Pallant Centre hall this time, but in St. Faith’s Church, Havant (with raised seating!). Please note there will be limited toilets available at this venue though.

Tickets are on sale now – book here

Therefore, the show is going to have to be postponed until the near future.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s Production of Macbeth.
By David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.
Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th September 2021, 7.30 pm at The Spring Arts Centre, 56 East Street, Havant. PO9 1BS

Tickets are available from The Spring Arts Centre box office 023 9247 2700 and are priced at £9 & £7, or via The Springs website.

This uproarious comedy sees the intrepid ladies of F.A.H.E.T.G.D.S. and some of their male friends, embark on a startlingly original production of Macbeth, which they hope will get them to the local drama festival finals. But under the watchful eye of adjudicator George Peach, events inevitably conspire against them!

Dynamo Road Map 2021

We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for your support in the group over the past year. Life during Covid-19 has presented many challenges for all. During this time we’ve been given the unique opportunity to think out of the box on ways to go forward with the group. During the lockdown periods we’ve been able to continue meeting with members via Zoom. This has not always been ideal but it’s given us the opportunity to create in ways that we’ve never been able to before. Members were able to work together to write their own Radio show. When we were lucky enough to return to live meetings members were able to record their work. We were very impressed with the members. Currently, we’ve been able to work in small groups with the direction of our current Year 13s to write and direct their Shield pieces. The members of the group have really impressed us with their dedication and commitment to Dynamo.

We are excited to share with you our current Roadmap to return to Dynamo. As we’ve seen over the past year, dates and timings can change at a moment’s notice. However, we are optimistic that going forward we’ll be able to go ahead with some exciting events we have planned. Please save these dates.

19 April: Live sessions resume with limited numbers of 15 per session
21 June: Return to full sessions with all members
28 June: Dress to Impress Shield Presentation
4 July: 6th Form Fundraiser
10 July: Recruitment Funday
11 July: Presentation Event for Family and Friends of the Company

More details about the above events will be given as soon as possible. We are so incredibly grateful to have your dedication and support to the group.
