Theatre producers are being urged to allow actors and backstage staff to share roles, in a bid to reduce the pressure on parents working in the performing arts sector.

The proposal was one of many put forward at the launch of Parents in Performing Arts, a campaign body that is seeking to improve conditions for people with children in the sector.

Other ideas put forward include a code of best practice for the industry, handbooks from regional theatres that detail local creches for actors with children, and tax breaks for people who have to pay for childcare. There were also calls for theatres to schedule rehearsals in advance, rather than giving them to casts on a weekly basis so that proper childcare arrangements can be made.
