Showcase Opportunities


Have you got a new piece in development?

Ready to showcase your work and take the next step towards a full production?

Iris Theatre supports up-coming artists by showcasing new shows, often musicals, at The Actors Church. Performances often run for one or two nights at the 254-seat venue located in the heart of central London in Covent Garden. Due to the nature of this space the work presented is often musical/sung work, highly visual or engaging performances rather than spoken word. With no upfront rental cost, working on a first call followed by a box office split, we offer support-in-kind and advice in the areas of marketing, administration, technical and front of house as well as producing advice in the form of Producing Surgeries.

We provide these opportunities from January – May and September – November annually.

Our Workin Process showcases programme includes:

Venue hire for our 254 seat venue The Actors’ Church, Covent Garden on a box office split – £500 first call and then 70/30 split thereafter (70% goes to you). If you don’t make the £500 you are no liable for anything additional.

Use of our in-house technical facilities – including a grand piano.

Marketing support

Front of house and box office management – including access to some third-party agents

Access to our Production Surgery programme
