About Stage One

In 1980 Solent Theatre Company formed a junior group, this was the Solent Theatre Company Stage On e. With the successful shows by the adult and youth company, the two groups became successful and popular with audiences. Sadly the group disbanded and Stage One became self-sufficient and became simply known as "Stage One".

Since then the company has flourished and has performed a variety of famous musicals including; 'Oliver!', 'West Side Story', 'Grease',
'Les Miserables', 'Cats' and most recently 'High School Musical''.

The group is an amateur one and is affiliated with the National Operatic and Dramatic Association or NODA. Stage One's object is to develop youth members in the art or music, drama and dance.

Joining Stage One

After each show, at the discretion of the comittee, prospective new members (currently aged 12 -17) are invited to attend an introduction meeting regarding joining Stage One. In the following weeks one evening
will be given over to auditions to join Stage One. The audition will require
you to sing or dance to a piece of your own choice.

We meet weekly on Fridays in the Drama Studio of Mayfield School in Mayfield Road, Portsmouth. There is a weekly charge that covers scripts, some costumes and production fee.

Since the closure of Ferneham Hall, Fareham for refurbishment we will now perform at The New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth. Performances take place during school half-term week three times in a two year cycle.
