If you’ve an idea we really, really want to hear about it.
*APPLY NOW* for an upcoming First in 3
First in 3 is a chance for theatre-makers, writers and performers to showcase new work and try it out, often for the first time, in front of an audience in Stage 3 at Northern Stage. The audience are asked to give written feedback, answering questions set by the performers, and are encouraged to hang around afterwards, have a drink, and chat to the performers about their pieces.
"As an artist, I had been looking to work with two other female artists for some time. I need look no further than First in 3 - a brilliant opportunity to see who is out there, what they are doing and to network and share ideas as a result." Claire Morgan, Monkfish Productions
There's no money for the acts but it's a good chance to try stuff out and get feedback on it, in a friendly environment. We welcome proposals from professionals, students, and in fact anyone who has a good idea. We also like to present a real mix of work at these nights, so you'll see comedy alongside serious drama, and performance art alongside new writing.
We want to provide a resource for people making theatre locally, and help them develop their work. First in 3 also helps us find out about the work that is happening in the region, and to build relationships with those who are making it. It is part of our wider Creative Residencies programme.
Artists are asked to submit a proposal to us by filling in an application form. This can be downloaded here and emailed to MCalvert@northernstage.co.uk
Tickets for First in 3 are only £5 (bargain!) and you can book for this event by calling our Box Office on 0191 230 5151.
