Commercial Investment

Stage One is a prominent investor in commercial, large-scale/West End productions. We do this by setting a specific set of guidelines set by a committee for producers to adhere to. 

Key points:

  • The maximum investment available is £50,000 and capped at 20% of the capitalisation.
  • Your application must be received at least 4 weeks before your first rehearsal.
  • In the event that an offer to invest is made, the Producer must show that they have the balance of the capital in hand.

Update 2021: Stage One have temporarily increased the cap on investment in light of the loss work work on theatre stages due to the closures caused by COVID-19. The purpose of the increased investment is to solidify Stage One’s aims to support new work and to encourage established producers to work with the next generation.
