Affiliates are tried and tested members of the theatre industry that have worked with eStage closely over the years and meet our yellow standard. Our affiliates work with us to deliver our projects as well as being able to help shape the business, and getting access to our tools and projects.

Affiliates are associated with one (or more) disciplines, at the moment we are focused on management and digital, however we are keen to expand and develop into more disciplines.
