Open Stage Online

Create and share stories, be bold and be loud

Whether you’re an inspired fan, an artist in lock down, or a global celebrity, this is your opportunity to share the things that nourish, encourage and amuse you during isolation. We all need a creative outlet, and we want to give you just that. We want you to share anything that feels important to you during these strange and mood-bending times.

With fortnightly creative inspirations, and an online stage where we exhibit your creativity, Open Stage Online is an online theatre that puts you centre stage.

The #FortnightFive

Every fortnight, we lay down the creative gauntlet to you. We'll set you five titles and we want you to send us your artistic take on them. They'll appear here and on our socials. Can be anything as long as it fits the title - go wild! This week, the titles are:
