Cumbernauld Theatre Trust would like to hear from artists interested in proposing an idea for a new winter season production for young people, aged 5 and under, and their carers.
Following the success of Hibernate (pictured), our co-production with Tortoise in a Nutshell in December 2021, we would like to hear from artists who have a brilliant idea for an original piece of work for audiences aged five and under, that will take place in our Studio Theatre in December 2022.
What Are We Looking For?
Creating live performance work for people in the first years of their life can be a truly joyful experience. For many of the people in the audience your production will be the first piece of live work they’ve ever seen. It’s a thrilling opportunity to create something full of life, wonder and imagination, for an important audience, at a key stage in their life.
To that end we’re really interested in hearing new ideas, that are full of inventiveness and colour, that sincerely considers the needs of this very special audience.
We would love to hear about projects that can include our local community in their creation, be that through research and development, a programme of workshops or training opportunities.
We welcome ideas from across the full spectrum of artforms, but are really interested in how you’re proposed piece will be open and accessible to audiences from different backgrounds and with potentially different needs.
We’ve got some exciting news to share! This year we’re presenting two brand-new festive productions in our Main Auditorium and Studio Theatre. Tickets will be on sale from Friday 31 March, but you can secure your tickets now by becoming a Friend.
