Another exciting announcement from RSC

PILOT Sites is back for 2015!

The first ever PILOT Sites for work-in-progress sited and/or outdoor work took place last year at the Birmingham Hippodrome. It was such a successful event that we are bringing it back for 2015! This time we're heading to Stratford-upon-Avon where the Royal Shakespeare Company will be hosting and co-piloting.

We'll be releasing more details of the event and how to apply very soon so keep an eye out on the newsletter, website and social media for that. But for now here are some very important dates for your diary!

PILOT SITES @ RSC Sunday 21st June 2015 Submissions open: 6th March 2015
Submissions close: 27th March 2015

About the RSC:

The Royal Shakespeare Company creates theatre at its best, made in Stratford-upon-Avon and shared around the world. Everyone at the RSC - from actors to armourers, musicians to technicians - plays a part in creating the world you see on stage. All  productions begin life at the Stratford workshops and theatres and then they bring  them to the widest possible audience through their touring, residencies, live broadcasts and online activity. So wherever you experience the RSC, you experience work made in Shakespeare’s home town.

They encourage everyone to enjoy a lifelong relationship with Shakespeare and live theatre.  They produce an inspirational artistic programme each year, setting Shakespeare in context, alongside the work of his contemporaries and today’s writers.  They have trained generations of the very best theatre makers and continue to nurture the talent of the future. They reach 450,000 children and young people annually through their education work across the UK, transforming their experiences in the classroom, in performance and online.
