Apprentice Scheme

The Stage One Apprentice Scheme offers unique hands-on training and development opportunities within established producing companies for outstanding entrepreneurial individuals.

We believe that being within a dynamic and successful company is the most important experience emerging producers need in order to hone their skills, and in the past have placed apprentices in companies such as Sonia Friedman Productions, Headlong, Playful Productions and Ambassador Theatre Group.

In 2016, we will be funding 6 commercial apprenticeships and 3 regional apprenticeships. Each role requires the candidates to have at least 1-2 years’ experience as a (fringe/small scale) producer and be able to demonstrate a dedication to a career as an independent commercial theatre producer.
Stage One and English Touring Theatre have created a unique opportunity for one outstanding apprentice producer.  For more information please click here.

The Stage One apprenticeship has been integral to the start of my Theatre Producing career. The apprenticeship has allowed me to access a wealth and breadth of information and advice, an opportunity I wouldn’t have had without this unique scheme. This information and advice has allowed me to develop my theatre producing skills quickly and as a result given me greater confidence in pursuing this career path. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Stage One Apprenticeship to anyone wanting to pursue a career in commercial theatre producing as I think there is no stronger springboard into the industry.” - Josh Beaumont (Previous Stage One Apprentice with James Seabright Productions, currently Associate Producer)
