Oxford Playhouse is committed to discovering, nurturing and promoting the best emerging talent from Oxfordshire and beyond.
With a range of programmes that include both teaching and project development support, we offer performers, writers and dramatists of all shapes the chance to hone their skills and practice at every stage of their career, from their first workshops at school to full touring productions.
We formally support a variety of Associate Artists, whose work we continue to showcase and assist. The Evolve: Artists in Residence scheme has been running since 2013, offering emerging artists artistic, organisational and financial support, allowing them to take the next step up in their careers. Our Playhouse Playmaker programme seeks out new playwriting talent of all ages, while our Saturday Sessions, Young Companies and ongoing workshops provide a superb opportunity to develop under professional tuition.
Oxford Playhouse consistently aims to cultivate the next generation of theatre-makers at all stages of their careers.
