Milton Keynes Work Experience/Placements

Milton Keynes Theatre offers three work experience placements per year that are one week in length. Our work experience placements are for young people aged 16 and above who are studying a related course or subject at sixth form, college, university or equivalent and are looking to gain an insight into working behind the scenes in a theatre.

Work experience weeks at Milton Keynes Theatre give successful applicants the opportunity to spend a day working with our Creative Learning, Box Office, Front of House, Technical and Marketing departments. Milton Keynes Theatre is a receiving house; a theatre which solely presents touring productions, therefore we are not able to provide students with work experience in acting, production, stage management, wardrobe, theatrical make-up or directing. Our work experience placements are only suitable for those interested in gaining a greater understanding of how a theatre operates and the different departments within it.

Our next work experience dates are:

  • Mon 19th – Fri 23rd Feb 2018 – Application deadline 1st January 2018
  • Monday 11th June – Friday 15th June deadline for applications May 31st

To apply for a work experience placement please complete our application form, specifying your preferred week (see available dates above) and email this back to

As we receive a very high volume of work experience requests, we will allocate our work experience placements via application and informal interview. We regret that we are unable to provide work experience placements at other times of the year to the above dates and that we will only accept applications from students aged 16 plus.
