Placements offer a rounded insight into the administrative and backstage activities of the theatre, although emphasis can be placed on a specific area of interest.

We offer work experience placements through schools and colleges in association with Education to Work (E2W) for pupils aged 14 and over. Placements are across all departments of the theatre giving an introduction to the general operations both backstage and administratively.

We also offer specialist placements for young people aged 16+ for those who wish to learn about a specific area such as technical theatre, marketing, stage management etc. These placements are at the discretion of each department manager and availability will depend upon our programme and working schedule. It is therefore subject to change each year. To register your interest in a specialist placement please contact Gemma Clark on
