Call Out for Writer and Composer – Hansel and Gretel

Application Closing Date: 20 Feb 2023

We’re seeking a writer and composer to commission for our family production of Hansel and Gretel.

Every Christmas, Nottingham Playhouse produces a family show aimed at children aged 3-8 in the Neville Studio. The production then tours to primary schools, libraries and other community settings in the region.

We are very proud that this production provides a vital experience for younger children, many visiting a theatre for the first time. It is a core part of our Christmas programme and has been building a reputation year on year.

For 2023/24, we are producing Hansel and Gretel and we’re seeking a writer and composer to commission. You may be:

  • A playwright
  • A composer
  • Part of a writer and composer duo
  • A writer and a composer

We welcome applications from all of the above. You can apply individually or as part of a duo.

The director will also be recruited via an open callout and the designer will be the winner of the Nottingham Trent University Playhouse Prize.

Nottingham Playhouse is committed to a policy of equality of opportunity and working with people representative of the diverse communities we work with. We actively encourage submissions from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Disabled people. Nottingham Playhouse is part of the Parents in Performing Arts (PIPA) campaign and welcomes submissions from people who have caring responsibilities.

We would like to help you to fully participate in the application process.
