A brand new musical production based on the lives and stories of those first Pilgrim Passengers

We are looking to build a cast, crew and production team to make this a memorable event for our city!


2020 will be the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower, an ship that transported the first English Pilgrims to the New World in 1620.  This is an important landmark for Southampton as the Mayflower set sail from the West Quay on 15th August that year on it's journey of hope and discovery.


This new musical production tells the real life stories of some of those passengers; their struggles and beliefs and how they persevered in the face of adversity to discover freedom in a new land.

E-Quip Arts Needs You!

We have a history of putting on large scale productions. On Good Friday, 2011, we delivered our first Southampton reenactment of the “Passion” to over 9000 people who filled the Guildhall Square in the centre of the city. An incredible team of people and an amazing cast told the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ right in the heart of our city. There were five different stages, live video relay to two large screens, a procession through the middle of the crowd, a crew of nearly 200 and a cast of 70 and of course our amazing 100 strong choir!


To commemorate the journey of the Mayflower and to celebrate the city of Southampton we are planning to stage our best production yet and we need you to consider being involved

The dates and venue for the performance are still being finalized but we will update as soon as things are confirmed. For now, we want to allow you to register your interest in being part of the team with us. So if you're an Actor, Singer, Dancer, Musician, Stage crew or Technician, please get in touch!
