South West theatre companies invited to join regional celebration
Salisbury Playhouse is looking for theatre companies to take part in Theatre Fest West 2017 – its annual celebration of work made in the south west.
After the success of this year’s festival, Salisbury Playhouse is delighted to be working again with The Pound, Corsham, Salisbury Arts Centre and Trowbridge Arts for Theatre Fest West 2017 to continue to provide companies with the opportunity to tour their work across the region.
Salisbury Playhouse is now on the lookout for small-scale professional productions that are available from 10 to 25 February 2017 to be part of next year’s festival and would love to hear from theatre makers and inter-disciplinary artists who are either based in or have stories to tell about the south west. Each year the festival hosts a range of work from emerging and established theatre makers, new writing companies, inter-disciplinary artists, dance companies and artists who make work for children and families.
Jo Newman, Assistant Resident Director at Salisbury Playhouse and curator of Theatre Fest West, says “Now in its sixth year, Theatre Fest West is an established showcase of some of the very best theatre makers from the region. We look forward to presenting another festival full of the most exciting companies from across the south west”.
