DIRECT YOUR FUTURE

Support programme for young directors

The Cervantes Theatre has launched its first development programme for young directors called Direct Your Future. After a selection process, we are happy to introduce you to the 6 emerging directors that will have the opportunity to develop their craft with this scheme. We are offering them a paid week of rehearsals at the theatre with actors so that they can explore their proposed project and a mentorship scheme to support them along the way.

“We can not afford to lose our youngest generation of artists. The future may seem dark and uncertain for many of them but we are here to offer our support and guidance, giving them voice and space within an international creative context and telling them that they are valued and needed”

Paula Paz, cofounder and Artistic Director of the Cervantes Theatre.

SUPPORT OUR PRODUCTIONS

– THE FRIENDS SCHEME

 

The Cervantes Theatre runs a friends scheme that enables people to support the charity to continue providing top quality theatre. Productions in off-west end theatres in London cannot be put on solely through ticket sales (prices would have to roughly double for this to be the case) and so every play requires money to be found from elsewhere. We are deeply grateful to our main corporate and institutional sponsors, whose logos with links to their websites are on the bottom of every page of this website together with Arts Council England for their support

The Friends scheme is designed for individuals who want to help us. In exchange we offer a range of benefits including discounts on ticket and bar prices. Read more here

OUR JOURNEY TO OPENING THE CERVANTES THEATRE

Watch this video to find out more.

The Cervantes Theatre stages numerous Spanish language plays throughout the year from both Spanish and Latin American playwrights. The productions are performed in Spanish on Monday-Tuesday, and in English Wednesday-Saturday. Our weekly Tuesday matinees are ideal for school groups wishing to visit our 88 seat venue.

All schools who wish to be involved with the programme will  be provided with our educational pack a few weeks before the trip, which includes information on our current production and interactive workshops which can be carried out in class either before or after seeing the play.

Visits also include a pre or post-show talk with a member of the creative team, who will talk about the creative process and discuss issues surrounding the play.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME

The Cervantes Theatre is proud to be a registered charity (Spanish Theatre Company) and needs to raise £400,000 each year to continue our work.
Please consider making a donation to assist our actors, staff and freelancers to create the best Spanish and Latin American theatre in the UK. We want to continue offering outstanding plays at the Cervantes Theatre and any amount you can donate to our charity would be very much appreciated during these difficult times.
