We now welcome applications for the academic year 2019-20.
What will I do on a placement?
Work experience takes place within all of our departments as we aim to give you an overview of how a theatre works as a whole. As a result, the majority of the placement will be admin and backstage-based, so if you are mainly interested in performing or "making" (such as costumes or wigs/hair and make-up) then you may be disappointed as work experience with us will not involve that - we are not a producing theatre. Priority will be given to students genuinely considering a career in technical theatre or theatre management.
The work experience placement will range from office-based duties within our Admin, Ticket Office, Hospitality and Marketing departments to shadowing/working with our Technical team.
How long is the work experience placement?
Placements last for a maximum of one week only; this is because demand is high and spaces are limited.
How do I apply?
Please do not ask your parents or teachers to contact us for your placement - we want to hear from YOU!
