52 Stages

52 Stages is a new Instagram account from The Stage and Mar Dixon designed to showcase some of the most exciting theatres across the UK. Each week a different theatre will take control of the Instagram account @52Stages to give exclusive behind-the-scenes access to parts of their theatre audiences never get to see.

Who is taking part?

More theatres will be announced later in the year.

What is 52 Stages?

52 Stages is a new platform to showcase some of the most exciting theatres across the UK, and the world.

“The UK has some of the most innovative and beautiful theatres in the world, and this new partnership will raise awareness of the brilliant work being carried out at these venues, some of which people may not be aware of.” Alistair Smith, editor of The Stage
