Work experience at the Old Vic: Applications now open


Students interested in work experience at The Old Vic can now apply.

We have a summer week available from 10-14 July and the student participating will have the opportunity to work with a range of departments within the theatre. Please keep checking our site for future work experience dates.

You’ll learn about things like how we create the work that goes on our stage, how we work with schools and our local community, how we connect with and serve our audiences, and how we support what we do through fundraising, plus much more. Where it is possible for you to watch our creative work being made, we’ll do our best to make sure this forms part of your week with us too.

If you love theatre and would like to find out more about what it’s like to work for one of London’s most exciting and dynamic theatres, here’s how to let us know:

Send us either a short video (no more than 1 minute) or an email about why you’d like to do work experience with us to

We are looking forward to welcoming students who show a real passion for the performing arts, and we’d love to see this in your application.
