Why Support Us

NST is a registered charity, we rely on the support of individuals, sponsors and funders to continue our work. Your donations enter our Impact Fund, which contributes towards making sure that people of all ages and circumstances can get involved in theatre. Here are just a few of the ways your donations give the gift of theatre to our community

YOUTH THEATRE AND DRAMA CLUB

Our Youth Theatre (ages 13-21) and our Drama Club (5-13) engage the young people of Southampton with our venues, taking part in performances, learning technical abilities and growing their confidence and social skills.

SUPPORTING EMERGING ARTISTS

Our Laboratory department nurtures local creators to encourage the people of Southampton to create their own productions, as well as supporting five year long associate positions for rising directors, producer and designers.

FREE TICKETING SCHEME

NST are committed to offering young and disadvantaged people in our community the opportunity to attend a performance or participate in an activity or workshop free of charge.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

We want our neighbours to think of NST as a place where their voices can be heard and their stories represented. Our Community Outreach department makes links with many local groups to involve them in our programming, and invites them to join us for special events to make sure all areas of the city are represented.

Without your support all this work would not be possible.
