Small Scale Commercial Investment
Over the past 40 years Stage One have supported and invested in West End and Number 1 tours across the UK and overseas. Now Stage One can offer to invest in smaller scale productions (not West End Venues) that fit the guidelines below. The aim is to be able to support a wider range of productions and to help producers create more commercially viable work and increase their pool of investors. For investment in West End productions please see our Commercial Investment Guidelines.
Please note that we are not able to invest in Edinburgh Fringe Shows or shows performing internationally and Producers who have received Stage One Investment for a West End production are precluded from applying.
The maximum investment Stage One can offer is £10,000 and capped at 20% of the capitalisation – all applications must be received 4 weeks before the first rehearsal.
The decision whether to invest in a production is made by a committee made up of active producers, at their discretion the guidelines may be varied depending on the individual circumstances of any production.
In order to apply you must read through the Small Scale Commercial Investment Guidelines. If your production is eligible please download an application form and email to Louise Goodman at [email protected]
