About our Company

Based in the North East of England our aim is to use our different specialties and styles to produce innovative and entertaining productions; ranging from theatrical performances to immersive experiences. We want to create new pieces of work showcasing the talent of northern artists as well as being open to performing works by established playwrights of the past and present.

Aureum Productions wants to have no boundaries or restrictions on the work we produce. Our only rule is that our productions and works are entertaining for our audiences.

About our Show

My First Time will be Aureum Productions’ debut production as a company. Featuring a 2 male, 2 female cast of wonderful actors retelling the stories of thousands of people’s first times, like you and I. Being the first people to perform My First Time in the UK we want to make sure that this is an experience not to be missed, one that leaves our audience feeling like they’ve been on hilarious rollercoaster as well as touching upon more moving moments.

In 1998 a website was created that allowed people to anonymously share their own true stories about their First Times. The website became an instant phenomenon as over 40,000 stories poured in from around the globe that were silly, sweet, absurd, funny, heterosexual, homosexual, shy, outrageous and everything in between.

These true stories and the unique characters in them are brought to life by four actors in the acclaimed, MY FIRST TIME.

 And now they’re doing it all over the world. My First Time features four actors telling hysterical and heart-breaking stories about first sexual experiences written by real people . . . just like you and me.

First sexual experiences are one of the few things that almost every single person on this planet has in common, whether you’re Paris Hilton or P. Diddy, George Clooney or George Washington, yet we rarely talk about them.  Until now…

My First time has been performed in several countries across the globe and has yet to be performed professionally in the United Kingdom.

Why Crowdfunder?

With this being our first production we are putting our all into making it the best experience possible for our audience, like all things this comes with a price.

As you can imagine, producing a play, let alone one of this nature and with it being a UK premiere it does not come cheap. However, we really believe this is a project worth investing in as it brings light to a subject the majority of us go through no matter our race, religion, gender, sexuality and background. Whatever donation you are willing to offer, big or small, will be appreciated, and we have a number of great rewards available should you chose to donate! 

All donations will go towards ensuring every element of the production (set, sound, lighting, costume, and props) meets our vision for a creative and polished professional production. 

We hope you will choose to join us on our journey to make My First Timea reality. From all of us in the company, we offer you our sincerest thanks, and look forward to seeing you at our event!
