The Highwayman – Jan 2019

The Highwayman is the sixth successful musical from John Gleadall & Greg Mosse – an exciting, atmospheric and memorable story of 18th century highway robbery, love, poverty and wealth. Like Daisy & Marvin Save the Day, their last Dynamo Youth Theatre musical, The Highwayman is packed with memorable ‘singalong’ songs. The exciting story ends with an extraordinary tragic climax – all of it inspired by the wonderful narrative poem of the same name by Alfred Noyes.

Wednesday 9th to Saturday 12th January 2019  with a matinee on the 12th too

Ticket prices are £12.00 and £9.00 for under 18s

The Flint Street Nativity – Sept 2018

Tickets are now on sale for this year’s sixth form show The Flint Street Nativity, 5th – 8th Sept 2018 at The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, East Street, Havant.

Please click here to be taken to The Spring’s booking system where you can purchase tickets

The play is set in the fictitious Flint Street Primary School. It focuses on the seven- and eight-year-old pupils in that evening’s sole performance of the school nativity play, from the pre-performance classroom preparations to the final stage performance, which culminates in calamity.

There are inevitable mishaps, misunderstandings, young egos, fears of failure and fallings out. The children’s characters eventually evolve into mirror images of their parents when the actors all appear as their parents (the play’s audience) at the post-show gathering.

Find Me – Sept 2016

How can you be found when you’re lost inside yourself?
Olwen Wymark’s drama ‘Find Me’ tells the true story of Verity Taylor.
At the age of twenty, Verity was charged by the police with damage by fire. Later, she was committed to Broadmoor “from where she may not be discharged without permission of the Home Secretary.”
Using the techniques of multiple characterizations, ‘Find Me’ seeks to investigate, in depth, the developing personality of the young girl – to ‘find her’ – and, at the same time, explores the effects of her behaviour on those around her.

Dynamo Youth Theatres production of ‘Find Me’ will run from September 7th to the 10th 2016 at The Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, 56 East Street, Havant, PO9 1BS

Daisy & Marvin Save the Day, Jan 2016

Daisy and Marvin Save the Day

The World Premier of ‘Daisy & Marvin Save the Day’ opened last night in St. Faiths Hall, Havant.

As Havant Dynamo Youth Theatre approach their 35th anniversary later this year, they are staging an ambitious brand new show at St Faith’s Church Hall, Havant, this week. With the title ‘Daisy and Marvin Save the Day’ the show is a play written by Greg Mosse with music by John Gleadall. Both author and composer are local – Greg lectures at Chichester University and John is well known for teaching and composing music in Havant.

The really exciting aspect of this production is the direction of the show by the senior members of the Company and the transformation of the Church Hall. Led by sixth former Gaby Luck, the members have enhanced the script with their development of the characters, choreographed the dance and fight scenes and set the staging of the scenes under the watchful eye of Andrew Bowker, Dynamo’s Artistic Director. Andrew commented “A big part of the Dynamo experience is that our young people are given the opportunity to develop themselves by taking creative responsibilities as well as acting”.

The adult volunteers have converted the hall into a theatre with raked seats and extended the stage to provide the space for the more than 50-strong cast to showcase their dramatic talent.

Although the Saturday evening and matinee performances are sold out, some tickets are still available for the 7:30pm shows on  Thursday 7th and Friday 8th. Tickets are £8, concessions £6 available online from or by phone on 023 9245 4244
