    You will work with us from September 2019 – April 2020 on a scripted piece of theatre, directed by a professional theatre director and supported by a professional creative team, working towards three performances in our Factory Theatre in April 2020.

    To join this company, you will need to take part in one of our selection workshops. We are aiming to see all applicants in the selection workshops and then will select a company after that point. The workshops are on Sun 23 June at the theatre (see details below) and we are looking for young people who are not only talented performers but who also work well with others and can contribute to the company as a whole.

    You must be:

    • Aged 13-19 years old
    • Available for all the rehearsal and performance dates
    • Keen to work with excellent theatre practitioners
    • Enthusiastic about working in an ensemble with other young people

    You could be:

    • Interested in other areas of theatre such as design, technical, marketing, etc. If so, you would not be expected to attend all rehearsals from September – you would join the process later but we welcome your application at this point.
