The show doesn't stop when the curtain comes down... in fact, the party has just begun.

Working closely with our partners we empower people and communities locally, nationally and online through creative outreach projects.

And we offer an array of professional development opportunities for LGBTQ+ and working class artists too.

LGBTQ+ Inclusive Creative Talent Development

Our flagship LGBTQ+ talent development programme continues in 2022-23 with a range of opportunities for theatre-makers, creatives, producers, and backstage crew in Greater Manchester.

The diagram below represents our dream plan starting in Autumn 2022. It’s fully costed, and now we’re seeking partners and funders to help make it a reality.


Each strand of the programme breaks down into two specific offers.

How to Apply

Our opportunities are for LGBTQ+ creatives, producers and backstage crew based in Greater Manchester.


If that is you, then first, you need to join our LGBTQ+ Talent Database below. 

We'll then send out Dibby Theatre opportunities to this database when they arise.

Being in the database also has other benefits - we'll send development opportunities from our partners, and we'll also offer free tickets to our shows and free workshops and networking events too (limited places offered on a first come first served basis)

Join our Talent Development Database

Thanks for applying to our Talent Development Database. We'll get back to you soon.
