Trainee Producer

We currently have an amazing role available 

Talawa was founded in 1986 by Yvonne Brewster, Carmen Munroe, Mona Hammond and Inigo Espejel, in response to the lack of creative opportunities for Black actors and the marginalisation of Black peoples from cultural processes. 

Today, Talawa is the UK's outstanding Black theatre company.

Our home is at Fairfield Halls, in the Cultural and Education Quarter of Croydon.

  • Are you interested in overseeing a performance successfully being put on stage? 
  • Are you highly organised? 
  • Are you the collaborative coordinator on a creative process? 
  • Are you doing exactly what a theatre producer does, without realising?

(DEADLINE: 10am Monday 12th April 2021)

    Under the Stage One Bridge the Gap scheme we are looking to find an aspiring producer from an under-represented background to support our mission of championing Black Excellence in theatre. 

    The trainee producer will work with our Community Engagement Producer to deliver MAKE and nurture emerging artists with an African or Caribbean heritage. 

    The role will be based at our office in Croydon (remote working until restrictions change). The role will be supported by Stage One through regular meetings and events to meet other producers and deepen their understanding of the industry.

    This placement is for people who would like to move into or take a step up in theatre producing and assisting on productions but have not felt they have access to do this before. 

    Bridge the Gap is targeted at people who have faced barriers to the industry and who have found it hard to make progress in their desire to work in theatre.
