Ever wondered what it’s like to work for London’s leading, independent, not-for-profit theatre?
The Old Vic is offering a one-week work experience programme for up to 20 participants aged 14–18. The course will run from the 04–08 Jul 2022, 10am–4.30pm each day at The Old Vic. Over the course of one week, you will:
- Discover how a producing theatre operates
- Meet industry professionals and find out more about careers in the arts
- Develop key employability skills – teamwork, communication, problem solving and public speaking
- Watch a show at The Old Vic
You will take on a series of challenges set by different departments such as producing, marketing and education & community. Through each session you will gain an insight into how a busy producing theatre operates. At the end of the week you will work together with the other participants to curate, plan and run your own event, putting to use all the knowledge you have gained over the course of the programme.
This programme is free to take part. You will be provided with a free lunch each day and travel bursaries are provided to all participants to cover the cost of London travel.
