Theatre Royal Plymouths Work Experience Programme (under 18s)

Monday 24 June – Friday 28 June 2024

Company15 is a week-long work experience programme for young people aged 14-17 (year 10 – 12). Designed to inspire a career within the arts, Company15 students will gain an insight into the workings of the largest and most well-attended regional producing theatre in the UK.

Over the course of a 5-day week, Company15 students will work with staff across the organisation at both the Theatre Royal Plymouth and our Production and Learning Centre, TR2 in Cattedown. Formulated especially for those who are interested in or studying Theatre, Design, Technical Theatre, Stage Management or Arts related subjects, the group will take part in creative workshops, talks and watch a show in one of our performance spaces. Team members from different departments will share their skills, expertise and routes into the industry.
