Programming at the Jack Studio

  • We’re keen to welcome new companies to the Jack, with ambitious ideas and great stories to tell
  • Throughout the year we programme a diverse mix of productions, providing a platform for new writing, innovative revivals of classic texts and musical theatre
  • We programme one to four week runs. We do not programme one off performances
  • We’re happy to arrange a time for interested companies to visit the theatre to discuss your proposal and production plans
  • Due to the number of enquiries we receive, we aim to respond to you within four weeks.  Please note, we do not give feedback on unsolicited scripts or on productions we are unable to programme
