WELCOME TO STARBURST FOUNDATION
Starburst Foundation is comprised of three operational arms, Theatre, Academy and Charity, all working together to improve the lives of local children.
The Theatre arm is the division resposible for the planning and running of the multiple yearly theatre shows, including Pantos and summer musicals, raising funds for the charity.
The Academy arm focuses on training kids and adults to perform, or simply to improve their acting, dancing or singing abilities. All profits from the Academy also go directly to the charity.
The Charity arm is the core division of the foundation, using all raised profits from the theatre and academy divisions and generous donations from local companies to fund bespoke/specialised equipment applications for local children.
Our Charity funds bespoke or specialised equipment to enable children to have a better quality of life, build self-esteem, improve confidence or assist with independence.
Run entirely by volunteers, we have helped hundreds of local families, schools and colleges in the area since we began and rely solely on funds raised by profits from Starburst Theatre productions, events hosted throughout the year as well as generous donations from local businesses and people in the local community.
If you think you or someone you know would benefit from Starburst's assistance, then we would love to hear from you.

Our charity's main source of funds comes from another arm of our foundation -
Producing regular, annual theatre performances including summer musicals and Christmas pantomimes, all profits from our voluntary run productions are donated back into our charity.
As well as raising profits to benefit local children with special needs, we also aim to develop the character of every member of our theatre company.
Whether it is performing, production or stage management they have a passion for, we have dedicated teams which are willing to work with new volunteers to show them the ins and outs of how we pull award winning productions together.
To learn more about the theatre division, our shows, and how to join us please visit the theatre website using the link below.
Starburst Theatre Academy (STA) is a brand new musical theatre academy in North Hampshire. STA is launched off the back of our award-winning theatre company.
We aim to bottle our success and feed this to our students to develop and enhance their own abilities. We will develop local children in the art and performance of Musical Theatre skills via the medium of Dance, Singing and Acting over three terms of structured and well-thought-out lessons, teaching core concepts and techniques.
To learn more about the Academy, or to book a taster session, please visit the Academy website using the link below.
Another source of funds for our charity comes from our extensive Hire department.
Whether you are a theatre company requiring professional sound and lighting equipment, a complete wardrobe of costumes for your production or just want to hire that single special fancy dress outfit for a night out, we have a full catalogue of goods for every need, available at affordable prices.
Please get in touch with our hire department to discuss your requirements.
