Brown's Mart Co-op

The Brown’s Mart Co-op model provides theatre artists with a forum for creating work that is of a more commercial nature. Brown’s Mart invests a small amount of funds into a production but the vast bulk of the funds are acquired from the box office and corporate sponsorship. Artists are able to share in the profits of the production. Artists buy in gives the artists involved a direct relationship with the audience who are attending the work. The better the box office the greater the returns. This model gives artists the opportunity to engage with national and international scripts that have a proven track record. It gives emerging directors the chance to work on established scripts. It allows actors a chance to develop some of the classic characters and it provides audiences an opportunity to see work from internationally and nationally regarded playwrights.
