Behind The Scenes Work WeekSupporter: Royal Exchange Theatre
About this opportunity
Opportunity Provider: Royal Exchange Theatre
This work experience event is 6 to 10 January 2020 at the Royal Exchange Theatre from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm each day. Participants must commit to attending all 5 days.
The Royal Exchange Theatre is offering a select group of Our Pass holders the opportunity to spend a week observing, learning from and working with the professionals behind the scenes, gaining hands on experience of what it's like to work in the arts.
Starting the week with introductory workshops, you will receive masterclasses across Sound, Lighting, Directing, Stage Management and Wardrobe to develop your understanding of the behind the scenes processes.
After these introductory workshops, you will pick a specialism that you would like to work in across Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. These three placement days give a more in-depth understanding of the day to day workings of your chosen department and will be vital in increasing your understanding of career pathways in the arts!
The week culminates in a small performance of a text piece, with directing working with our young company members, and all other departments having full access to our resources and expertise to make the sharing on the Friday a real event.
Across the week all your work will be documented and accredited by a Bronze Arts Award.
