We’re always pleased to welcome new companies to the Jack, with bold and ambitious ideas. 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’re here to help you bring your production to life. Companies who bring their work to the theatre are offered help with free audition & rehearsal space, as well as marketing support and practical advice on how to realise your project. We also provide box office staff, and assistance on your get-in and get-out.
We programme runs of one – four weeks. We do not programme one-off performances.
The Jack has a very competitive hire fee, and we also offer box office splits. For more information about what to expect during your time at the Jack and booking options, please clickhere.
If you have a theatre project you’d like to bring to life, we’d love to hear from you!
We hire the rehearsal room (10mts x 7mts) on a daily or weekly basis. The rehearsal room has a fridge, microwave and tea and coffee making facilities. It also has sound equipment and wi-fi.
The rehearsal room will be available for hire from October onwards, for socially distanced rehearsals! The rehearsal room will now have a maximum occupancy of 8. If you wish to find out more, please drop us a line.
*Please note we are not currently programming any more new productions at the Jack, as we work to rescheduling our existing programme. If you have a project you wish to bring to the Jack in the future, please do be back in touch with us from late October onwards. We look forward to hearing from you then. We will not be looking at venue enquiries before this time.
If you’re interested in bringing your work to the Jack, we require the following information from you:
Company details, reviews and production images of past productions, where possible
A copy of the script, if it is a new play
If performing rights are available
An outline of your preferred dates and the proposed length of run
We are happy to arrange a time for interested companies to visit the theatre, should the project be suitable for our programming.
To find out more about our availability and forward your proposal, please contact Karl
Due to the number of enquiries we receive, we aim to respond to you within three weeks. Please note we are not able to give feedback on unsolicited scripts or on proposals that we are unable to programme.
