“Very helpful insight into the process of production”


“Filling in gaps in knowledge about stuff like overall production budgets, contracts and having to identify issues in a contract was massively helpful.”


“Very useful hearing professional experiences!”

Previous Workshop Participants

We are thrilled to be running a series of workshops for new producers with Quantum Frolic Theatre Company based at the Old Red Lion Theatre and The Nursery Training Centre.


We have upcoming workshops, Introduction to Production; a workshop aimed at new producers looking to stage their first run or production and Everything You Need To Know To Run A Successful Scratch Night.; a workshop  aimed at anyone who wants to put on a scratch night or one off show and includes setting up a theatre company.

These workshop are ideal for early career producers who are thinking of bringing a show; be it a scratch night, showcase, rehearsed reading or their first full run of a show to the theatre. They are also suited for actors, writers, directors and artists looking to start a company or produce their own work.

Introduction to Production is a practical, anecdotal and accessible guide to the ins and outs of putting on a production including:

  • Budgeting

  • Setting up a theatre company

  • Pitching a play

  • Understanding contracts

  • Casting

  • Making a production diary

  • Choosing a theatre 

  • Contacting venues well as a chance to talk about your potential project (if you have one)

and get some specific feedback and advice.
