Work Experience

Work Experience

Applications for the academic year 2019-20 are closed.

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?

Due to current circumstances we are not accepting any work experience applications. We will advise once this situation changes. 

Please do not ask your parents or teachers to contact us for your placement - we want to hear from YOU!
