We offer a work experience programme that is accessible, relevant and safe. 

All placements are planned, monitored and evaluated. However in order to provide the best possible experience, we limit the number of placements each year.

We are committed to providing work based experience to develop the skills base of local young people who are our prospective workforce and the future professionals of the Performing Arts industry.

The week long ‘Carousel’ placement is for students in Year 9 & 10. The individual will undertake various sessions throughout the week in various different departments of the Theatre to enable an all-round experience. Tasks based upon knowledge and understanding of the Performing Arts industry and Newcastle Theatre Royal will also be set to be completed during the week.
As work placements are in high demand, we will shortlist and invite to interview only those candidates who best satisfy the application criteria and who demonstrate a clear enthusiasm and desire to pursue a career in the industry.

Placements for the Winter term have been allocated and our next opportunity will be in the Spring term.
