Work Experience

We offer some great work experience opportunities across the Theatre Royal Plymouth. Through this, we aim to help you make informed decisions about the breadth of the industry, and also about the arts sector.

Company 15

We receive a large number of requests for work experience and because of this we have formulated a specific week for young people between the ages of 14 and 17 called Company15.

Over the course of the week, Company15 participants will work with staff from across the organisation both in the Theatre Royal Plymouth and at TR2. The group will be set a series of tasks throughout the week that are related to a play (usually the performance in The Drum at the time) or by creating their own imagined Creative Learning project. Each department will explore the length and breadth of the theatre world, covering each aspect of how people do their jobs.


The Theatre Royal aims to offer a range of work experience opportunities throughout the year. Our placements are designed to offer people over the age of 18 an insight into the context of working within a large scale regional theatre.

Throughout the year we will be advertising a variety of individual placements, along with details of how to apply. If you’re interested in working in theatre, developing new skills and being part of a large creative team, our opportunities will be perfect for you.

All placement opportunities will be posted on this page, so please check back a little later for future opportunities. If you would like any more information please email Engagement and Learning
