about us

Kouban Productions is lead by theatre producer James Steel & general manager Yiannis Koutsakos. Kouban Productions was formed in 2013 as a platform for writers to create and develop their new and original musicals. 

The team at Kouban Productions are working closely with teams of vibrant up and coming writers, lyricists and theatre creatives from around the UK & US, collaborating on the creation of brand new Musicals for everyone to enjoy. 

Kouban Productions has a strong passion for small-scale productions both Fringe (<99 seats) and Off-West End (100-499 seats).

The company believes that these high-quality small scale productions will create unique experiences and keep audiences returning to see more of Kouban Productions upcoming new musicals.


While Kouban Productions is seeking out new musicals from up and coming writers to help develop their work, the company also has a Resident Playwright, Composer and Lyricist who develop our new musicals, such as USHERS: The Front Of House Musical & Mind The Gap. 

We are proud to have an open & free submissions policy, and we always encourage writers to send in their plays or musicals via our submission page.

Kouban Productions also distributes performance licenses for Professional & Amateur productions. Visit our catalogue

We are a proud member of Musical Theatre Network.
