This role will support the company through a 32 date national tour of our award winning show Kinder and 3 Spectrum Youth Theatre residencies for neurodivergent young people.

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.
