The Producer Programme

Bridge the Gap is a year-long development programme that supports 10 emerging producers each year.

The programme is designed around the needs of the participants and includes: 

  • Tailored masterclasses focusing on career progression and skills development, led by experienced workshop leaders
  • Regular group tickets and access to West End shows 
  • Year- long mentoring from an experienced professional or producer to support the transition into commercial producing
  • Monthly group meetings with Stage One staff and community.
  • One to one personal coaching sessions 
  • A free place on the three day Stage One Workshop
