EMERGE 2021

Please read the guidance below in order to apply!

Have you graduated or entered the industry in since 2019? Do you want to make some theatre? If so, EMERGE 2021 is for you.

Throughout December 2021, we want to feature emerging artists and give them a platform to experiment and make work, so we're turning our stage over to you. 

What will you get?

  • A 1-4 night run with no upfront costs, on a 60:40 box office split (in your company's favour)

  • Marketing support from the theatre

  • Free space for the tech and dress rehearsal. There may also be opportunity for a small amount of free rehearsal space in the venue where possible.

  • The chance to make theatre in a lower-risk environment and attract audiences to see your work.

STAGE ONE

Calling Writers, Producers, Directors and Complete Creative Teams

Open until 30th September, 5pm

WRITERS

Please send us a script along with a character breakdown, brief synopsis and a bit about you as a writer. Please also indicate if you would be interested in a rehearsed reading or full performance of your script, we are open to either.

PRODUCERS

Please tell us a bit about yourself and what sort of work you are interested in producing. If the answer to this question is 'all work', that is perfectly valid too, just let us know if you have specific interests. Please also attach a CV to let us know what you've done so far.

DIRECTORS

Please tell us a bit about yourself and what sort of work you are interested in directing. If the answer to this question is 'all work', that is perfectly valid too, just let us know if you have specific interests. Please also attach a CV to let us know what you've done so far.

If applying for one of the three above, we will aim to team up successful applicants into a writer/director/producer team based on their interests. 

COMPLETE CREATIVE TEAMS

Perhaps you already have a team and a show you want to make. This is fine too! Let us know a synopsis of the show, plus a character/casting breakdown. We'd also love to hear a bit about everyone in the team, and how you came together. Please attach scripts/CVs as appropriate!

Please send all applications and any questions to emerge.golden.goose@gmail.com

Please include the role you're applying for in the subject line (eg "DIRECTOR", "CREATIVE TEAM" etc)

If a video message suits you better than a written application, this suits us too, so please feel free to send that instead!

WE CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR FROM YOU!

STAGE TWO

At a later date we will be inviting applications from Actors, Lighting and Sound Designers and Stage Managers/Operators.

We will announce this stage in due course.
