St Pancras International is to play host to a series of theatre productions live on the concourse.
Called ‘Producers Platform’ performers will put on a range of new productions before they move to mainstream London theatres.
The showcase will feature a range of quality companies from the innovative Political Arts Company, to the performance trio Mitsotu, as well as regular work from the ScenePool Creative Producers and Quirkas Productions.
The scheme, which will give theatre producers a much welcomed showcase, has been endorsed by the 14 Camden Theatres venue managers who praised the station for supporting small scale theatre in a time of recession. The shows will be staged on Sunday afternoons.
Says Wendy Spinks, of High Speed 1, which runs St Pancras International, ‘St Pancras International has a strong history of being a hub for culture, supporting the best of local talent across music, dance and now theatre.
‘Producers Platform is a brilliant opportunity for those passing by to get a real taste for fringe talent in Camden and in turn it provides a much needed space for emerging producers to showcase their work to a large diverse audience.’
