Cumbernauld Theatre seeks a Theatre Producer to produce the Cumbernauld Theatre Company and socially engaged production programme within a distinctive team-based culture that involves a high level of collaboration and partnership working for Lanternhouse, the brand-new performing arts venue in Cumbernauld that opened in Autumn 2021.    

This is a new role for the organisation and different to the role previously advertised in January 2022.

The principal purpose of the post is to produce 4 in-house productions per year and a programme of community and socially engaged activities that is both reflective and responsive to our community and audiences. 

The Theatre Producer will work closely with the CEO and Executive Producers for each production as well as reporting to and working with the Artistic Programming Steering Group (APSG). The APSG group is made up of Theatre Directors from the performing arts, Board members from the community and staff with related responsibilities. The role of this group is to develop a relevant and reflective set of priorities to steer artistic programming policy and serve in an Artistic Direction capacity to ensure the Artistic Strategy Values are delivered. Alongside the CEO the Theatre Producer will facilitate this process, to support the management and administration of productions and programme.  

It is our ambition that the post-holder will produce, through a collaborative process, an appealing, engaging, and high-quality programme that cultivates existing, and reaches new audiences. The programme of work will reflect the objectives of key stakeholders such as the community, the arts sector, the funders such as Creative Scotland, North Lanarkshire Council and meet our responsive organisational planning targets as well as the strategic cultural ambitions of Scottish Government.

An important part of the role will be to foster collaborative relations with professional artists and creative practitioners, with arts organisations, promoters, agents, supporting independent arts companies, and develop partnership with other arts and cultural enterprises. 

The Theatre Producer will be responsible for negotiating key terms with creatives, agents, and producers, drafting contracts, managing production budgets and schedules, in line with the theatre’s market and ever-evolving artistic policy priorities.
