About Stage One

Welcome to Stage One, as a charity we support new UK theatre producers and productions and are committed to securing the future of commercial theatre through educational and investment schemes. If you are an aspiring theatre producer, Stage One can help get you onto the first rung of your career ladder, and turn your entrepreneurial ideas and ambitions into reality.

Stage One is a charity and our work would not be possible without the support of the Society of London Theatre and many generous individuals, businesses, trusts and foundations.

Stage One’s courses, bursaries and placements, and financial support for new productions is vital in ensuring that those brave people understand what they need to make a success of producing, have support from experienced practitioners, as well as financial benefits.
