From Autumn 2022, Stage One and Perfect Pitch are delighted to be working together to award outstanding emerging producers an increased level of financial support for both the producer and the project to allow meaningful development of new British musicals to take place.

If you are an emerging producer, Stage One can provide financial and practical assistance to help get your productions up and running and support your overall development.

Stage One are looking for applications from producers where their planning is long-term, ambitious but realistic.

Step One: Producers will be awarded up to £15,000 to support themselves and the development of new projects. For example; if you need financial support to commission artists to create work we can support this, we can also support you financially i.e. rent, bills, accountants or legal fees.

Step Two: You will work with the Stage One Team to find an experienced professional to mentor you during the time you are receiving support from Stage One. The mentor will be available for consultation and advice, they will also sign off on your monthly report and invoices to Stage One. Further training through Stage One is also provided free of charge on specific topics relevant to your practice.
