Donmar Warehouse

Pathways: Work Experience

We are looking for young people aged 16-19, who live or study in the boroughs of Camden and Westminster and have an interest in a career in the arts to join us for a week of  work experience during 24-28 October 2022!

The programme will introduce young people to the different pathways into the industry and the breadth of roles available in departments including: producing, marketing, designing, technical theatre and fundraising.

Successful applicants will be taken behind-the-scenes, working closely with the Donmar team and other young people in a number of sessions to gain an insight into theatre-making beyond the rise and fall of the curtain. They will face real life tasks and scenarios to help them gain a better understanding of what each role entails. At the end of the week, they will have their own action plan for their next steps.

For those who need it, we offer a travel bursary for any in-person sessions.

Applications are now closed. To find out more about our next LOCAL Young Writers programme, sign up to our mailing list here.
