Bridge The Gap Placements

Through Bridge the Gap, Stage One are now working in partnership with companies to fund 12 month paid placements championing entry-level roles and the need for a diverse workforce.

The Bridge the Gap Placement offers one eligible producer a 12-month paid placement with one of the UK’s most established regional theatres. The placement offers valuable experience and learning about the role of a producer through ‘hands-on’ training. 

Producers on a Bridge the Gap Placement also receive a place on Stage One’s Bridge the Gap Development Programme, which addresses the lack of diversity in theatre producing through mentoring, workshops, support from the Stage One team, and more.

We're thrilled to currently be hosting our 2023-24 placement with Leeds Playhouse, sponsored by the Aziz Foundation.  

I loved my time at the Gate and definitely have felt like I am a better producer because of it. The mentorship both from them and Stage One has been key in shaping my producing practice - which I hope/believe is empathetic, kind, thrifty, and enjoyable. It is a program I will always shout about and recommend.
