We have developed a work experience program for students studying at GCSE level and above, who are passionate about gaining experience in a working theatre. Students will experience first hand how a receiving venue works, spend time working within various departments and assigned tasks which may be developed and delivered within the business!

We also offer a technical work experience program for those aged 18+. Working with our technical team during the run of a West End production, a full work experience schedule will be created in order for you to gain the most from your placement. Whether you’re studying technical theatre, considering a career backstage or looking to improve existing skills within an amateur setting, this could be perfect for you!

Both work experience program have limited availability; therefore please apply well in advance of your required dates.

Further and Higher Education students who have a keen interest in a career in the creative industry, creative education or working in the community are advised to get in touch to discuss any opportunities available.
