Theatre Maker

A community of classes, workshops, talks, scratch nights, readings, and performance opportunities - in the theatre and online. 

Get to know your peers at our Theatre Maker events, workshops, performances, and more. Show new work at our monthly performance platforms: scratch night Theatre In The Pound and rehearsed reading series New Stuff. Try out new ideas and techniques in our courses, or book a 1:1 advice session with Theatre Maker programme director Amy Clare Tasker. We offer reduced studio hire rates, box office splits, tech, design, direction, marketing, and social media support - helping Theatre Makers where we can. 

More courses, workshops, events, and opportunities to be announced... keep an eye on this page, or sign up for our newsletter.
