- By Keith Harrison
- Wed 03 Aug 2022
The Gatehouse Theatre is doing an open call to find professional theatre companies, independent producers and individual performers around the UK and beyond who are touring professional shows in 2022, 2023 and 2024.
We’ve been open since 1982 so know a huge number of companies and our team regularly scouts new work. However we, of course, still miss finding out about some amazing shows until it’s too late.
If you’re a professional theatre company or an independent producer and you’d like us to find out more about your work then we’d love you to get in touch
Every year we programme hundreds of shows and events across a range of theatre spaces – from our front of house piano bar area for 50 people to shows for our 140 seat MET studio and our 535 seat main house theatre.
We’ve been open since 1982 so know a huge number of companies and our team regularly scouts new work. However, we of course still miss finding out about some amazing shows until it’s too late.
Both have excellent sound and lighting facilities and generate fantastic atmospheres.
As an organisation we’re also interested in small-scale work that could tour and work in other spaces across the region.
These notes are specific for this call out – we may do other calls in future for community companies, artists, actors, creatives or co-producing.
