Work Experience

We offer one-week work experience placements at certain points throughout the academic year for students age 14 -18.

To give students a full understanding of how a theatre is run they will spend time learning about and working in each department as well as getting an opportunity to see the show!

Example Timetable

MONDAY Technical Technical King Lear
TUESDAY Finance Development  
WEDNESDAY Stage Door Box Office  
THURSDAY Programming Front of House  
FRIDAY Education Marketing
