We invite young people wanting to pursue a career in the creative aspects of theatre making to be part of a team that is professionally led. There will be creative opportunities for students to demonstrate original creative thinking alongside these productions and also other projects that will be happening here throughout the year.

There are opportunities for you to get involved in our summer project which offers professional training in all aspects of drama performance. It is the one time where you can be involved with productions that are delivered ‘in-house’, working to a tight schedule you have the chance to be part of productions that are performed in The Festival Theatre and Forum Theatre.
