TO PRODUCE AND TO PERFORM
A masterclass with Josie Dale-Jones
This is for people who want to produce and perform. This is about the two ‘yous’; on and off the stage, the one that says this show is shit, and the one that has to say it is shit hot.
- Money, if it exists and where to find it
- Making friends with venues
- Managing people and their expectations
- Paying people and then being in the rehearsal room with those people
- Marketing a show that hasn’t been made yet

Josie’s masterclass is part of an expanding programme at Tobacco Factory Theatres.
Our theatre owes so much to freelance and independent artists, who have created almost everything we’ve presented over the last 20 years. These exceptionally talented and professional colleagues have been confronted with huge challenges through Covid-19, whilst on the whole receiving far less support than venues.
Last year we partnered with The Cube Microplex to distribute hardship grants to local artists with acute financial difficulties, funded by The Gane Trust.
This year, whilst we continue to work on our long-term survival, we aim to support local artists in new and varied ways.
The first initiative is our Masterclasses Programme, designed for South West-based professional artists, and led by a range of inspiring practitioners.
