Work Experience

At York Theatre Royal we are always looking for ways to meaningfully engage with and develop the skills of young people and emerging artists through work placements, School work experience and our award winning TakeOver Festival which is our most exciting and innovative work experience/placement opportunity for young people aged 12-26. 

All opportunities will be advertised on the Jobs & Opportunities page of our website as and when they are open for applications.

Due to the high number of requests we receive for work experience placements we are unable to respond to speculative requests.

Opportunities for Year 10 Work Experience placements have now been filled for 2019.

Work Experience testimony – Oliver Eaden from Breckenbrough School, December 2014

"Work experience at York Theatre Royal has been an astounding experience for me. I have enjoyed hearing the story of The Lady in Grey, seeing a dress rehearsal of Puss in Boots,  going to costume hire, being an usher, putting up the Christmas tree, doing tweets for the creative engagement Twitter page and did a few illustrations for Puss in Boots. Next, I am going to interview an actor and hopefully go backstage! Goodness knows what else York Theatre Royal has in store for me. I have really enjoyed work experience at York Theatre Royal and am sad to be going.

Thanks for everything!
