Welcome to FYT!

We are Footlights Youth Theatre, a successful youth theatre based in the Chandlers Ford area of Hampshire. We produce two full-scale productions annually, often involving a cast of over 50 and we are very proud of the numerous accolades we have been awarded over the last 17 years, particularly our recent 'Accolade of Excellence' from NODA for Les Miserables. Thanks to our generous audiences, Footlights has also managed to support many local charities over the years. We are the junior section of EOMS (Eastleigh Operatic and Musical Society).

Little Shop of Horrors Success!

A huge congratulations to all the cast and crew of Little Shop for a hugely successful run! See what our reviewers and audiences had to say...


"I cannot praise this show enough. The writers of this piece would be as joyous as I was to hear and see this 50's pastiche celebration of B movies, wonderfully sung and acted by this talented group" 

~ David Putley, Curtain Up South
