The Old Rep is a young people driven theatre situated on Station Street in the centre of Birmingham. 

Just as in the days of Birmingham Repertory Company where young actors would come from all over the country to learn their craft, The Old Rep strives to engage, educate and entertain the next generation of artists and theatre lovers. With a high quality programme of events, The Old Rep is a creative hub that showcases professional productions as well as nurturing talent by providing a platform to showcase amateur performances.

We are dedicated to providing space for young people to craft a career in the arts and we offer a wide range of training opportunities within production, theatre management, marketing and technical theatre.

As part of this commitment to nurturing new talent, The Old Rep offers a programme of apprenticeships together with Creative Alliance, a specialist provider of creative apprenticeships and opportunities. We also offer work experience placements for students in secondary school, further and higher education to provide them with an insight into the workings of a professional theatre environment. These will be advertised as they become available.
