The placements are ideally suited to those wishing to develop a career in music theatre or related areas and who are committed to working with young people.
The productions involve young people selected from auditions across the UK and these projects will be creating new music theatre in a variety of genres. Production courses generally run for 2-3 weeks during JULY and AUGUST.
The programme of activity will vary but each trainee will have a considerable level of responsibility, the exact nature of which will be decided upon in conjunction with the director or musical director of the project.
The placements are unpaid but trainees receive accommodation, food, travel and a modest allowance during their placement.
