We need a Producer!

Smoking Apples Theatre Company (Flux, In Our Hands, CELL) seek a Producer to work with the company through an exciting new phase of artistic and audience development. This role will support the company through an R&D of a new show and a second tour of our most recent show, Flux. This activity will run from May 2020 – March 2021, however this timeline may potentially be extended due to the current Covid-19 pandemic.

Our new R&D is aimed specifically at young adults, our first official foray into this audience, and will be developed with neurodiverse artists, with input and feedback from neurodiverse teenage audiences. This second tour of Flux, a story of a female Nuclear physicist fighting to get her voice heard, will have captioning and audio description using tourable equipment, making it possible for all of our tour venues to offer this to their audiences. Having consistently created and toured successful puppetry and visual theatre productions for the last 10 years, we are looking to develop our audience base, both in terms of numbers and venues, but also to diversify the audiences we engage. We are therefore seeking a dynamic freelance producer to join the team and support this, but also challenge us and introduce us to new networks and ways of working.  

Fee: £1,980.00 – 18 days at £110 per day, across 8 x months of activity, within the total project. 

Please download the full job description here for more details and how to apply.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 27th May 2020, 5pm.

Interviews: Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th June 2020. Please ensure you are available on one of these days.

We regret that we cannot invite everyone to interview but all applicants will be informed either way, no later than Monday 1st June 2020. 

Please note, due to the high volume of applications we receive, any incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

This position has been supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Smoking Apples’ 10th Birthday!

This year is our 10th Birthday and although it’s not strictly until September, we’ve decided to celebrate early and bring a little lightness to the bizarre times we find ourselves in, during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We’re taking a look back over our last 10 years and pulling out some great moments from each one. We’ve tried to focus on things you might not have seen before or didn’t get a chance to look at the first time they came around. Highlights include a shadow music video for Kate Bush, the Olympic and Paralympic Athlete’s Parade and a whole host of other gems.

Head over to our social channels to check them out!
