Thinking about a career in the theatre industry?

Are you interested in music and sound production, organising events or art and design?

Ever wondered about the backstage team?

Then come to our free five-day course to help you decide if you would like a career in theatre production. It's for young people aged 16-20 who live or study in Islington. No previous theatre production experience is necessary.

We are linking up with Platform to deliver a course designed to help young people decide if they want to apply for drama school.

You will get the chance to find out more about the application process, the industry, auditioning and explore whether drama school is the right option for you.

We especially encourage applications from people who are under-represented within the creative industry, for example students from black, Asian, minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds, lower-income families, disabled students and care leavers/looked after children.

We will update this page with dates and details when the next course is scheduled.

Course includes

  • lighting, video and sound workshops
  • making costume and props workshops
  • exploring a range of roles in the industry
  • explaining the application process
  • create a theatre production portfolio
  • preparing for a practice interview
  • a wellbeing session
  • meet industry professionals
  • a trip to RADA and the National Theatre
  • free tickets for graduate RADA shows
