Work Experience

We regularly offer work experience placements for students in secondary school, further and higher education which give them an insight into the workings of a professional theatre environment. 

A week's placement at The Old Rep will typically involve shadowing some or all of the following:

  • Marketing & Box Office team: You'll learn about how they promote The Old Rep's busy programme and how the Box Office runs day to day. 
  • Technical team: You'll find out more about the backstage areas of a theatre and how the team set up and operate a performance.
  • Operations team: You'll learn more about how the operations team manage the Front of House areas of the theatre and how staff are deployed during a performance. 

If you have a particular interest in one area, we may be able to give a placement more of a focus on that department. 

Work experience placements are subject to availability and will only be scheduled for weeks when events are programmed. To find out more about work experience opportunities at The Old Rep, please email your information and ideal placement dates to
