Drama from the heart

Formed in 2000, Act Now Theatre School is a fun, exciting drama school based in Southampton. Our students are encouraged to express themselves through authentic and honest acting. Through our classes we aim to produce bright and confident performers who act from the heart. Natural acting is what we cherish. Our classes build confidence, resilience and boost self-esteem. Why not book a FREE TRIAL for one of our classes?

Home Grown Plays

We are proud to be one of the few drama schools with an in-house playwright who writes bespoke plays, tailored to our individual students. This way we can ensure that all students have an important part and are ALL integral to the play. Our plays cover historical events, culture issues as well as socio-economic topics. We explore topics that are relevant to young people such as bullying, friendships and growing up. Examples of past performance can be found here.

I can’t put into words exactly how much of a positive impact being involved in a.n.t.s. had on my life growing up. Not only did it build up my confidence from scratch and help me develop life long friendsghips, a.n.t.s. played a key role in shaping me into the person I am today.

Fiona is amazing. She goes above and beyond for all of the children. My son’s confidence has soared under her care.

A.n.t.s. isn’t like other drama schools and Fiona isn’t like other drama teachers. The children are taught with the same integrity and values as any young adult would expect at a renowned drama school. Fiona nurtures and understands the individual needs of every child she encounters. Your child will leave a.n.t.s. with a strong sense of who they are and who they will become. I couldn’t recommend a.n.t.s. enough.
