Open Doors: A Greater Manchester Theatres Guide for Artists

Greater Manchester has a wonderfully rich and diverse theatre ecology. This is especially true in the independent theatre sector, and the continuously evolving talent of individuals and companies in the city.

But we are aware that there is a rich seam of creative talent in Greater Manchester who aren’t necessarily aware of what options are available, or which organisations best suit their needs as an artist.

In coming together to produce this guide, we have sought to share what we – as a group of theatre buildings – can do to support, sustain and nurture the sector. Having asked theatre makers what they would like, we know that clear information and signposting is a vital tool. We hope this guide helps.

The intention is that this guide isn’t set in stone: it’s a living document, and we hope to add and develop it as the landscape of the region changes.
