The Old Vic 12

Introduced by Artistic Director Matthew Warchus in 2015, The Old Vic 12 is a group of developing artists ready to take the next step in their careers. The scheme provides access and insights into top-level theatre-making, mentoring from industry experts, opportunities to deliver masterclasses to emerging artists and paid opportunities to collaborate with each other to create brand new work.


The Old Vic’s Principal Partner Royal Bank of Canada have enhanced their support to become Principal Partner of The Old Vic’s Emerging Talent Programme, enabling The Old Vic 12, the Baylis Director and Baylis Assistant Director programmes, and the Connect Network. As Principal Partner, RBC is helping to sustain the lifeblood of the creative industries when it is needed most, and we are indebted to their generosity and vision.

The Old Vic 12 is generously supported for 2019–2021 by: The Eranda Rothschild Foundation, Claire Bullus, Nathalie & Nicolas Giauque, The Victoria Wood Foundation, PRS Foundation, The Noël Coward Foundation, The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust, The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, The Garrick Charitable Trust, The Leche Trust and The Old Vic Impact Fund.
