General Opportunites

Iris Theatre have ongoing schemes for Emerging Artists to get involved with us as well as rolling work experience opportunities in theatre administration, production and marketing. Check out our Volunteering page to find out more.

In general we work with emerging artists across all fields of production in theatre, music, dance, cabaret, circus and opera. If you have suggestions of other ways in which you would like to get involved why not drop us a line and tell us more.

 

Co-Production Opportunity

Have you got a musical theatre piece that is looking for a central London showcase? Do you have the production team in place, but need a venue and some production support? Is your work musical / sung, without too much reliance on spoken text?

Iris Theatre is looking for productions to showcase, typically for one or two nights. The venue is the famous St Paul’s Church (the ‘Actors Church) in Covent Garden, in the heart of central London. It is a large space that seats approximately 200 people and is best suited acoustically to musical/sung work, highly visual or engaging performances rather than spoken word.

What we offer is a reduced rental fee, support in the areas of marketing, administration, technical and front of house as well as producing advice in the form of Producing Surgeries. We are not able to offer financial support but we do provide support in-kind as well as fundraising advice. The rental fee does not need to be paid in advance but will come out of ticket sales. Low cost, low risk.

To apply please send your script, idea, concept, press quotes, multimedia content or any other supportive material along with details of your company and creative team to sofi@iristheatre.com
