COMPANY15 is a five day work experience residency at the Theatre Royal, Plymouth. It gives 15 young people the chance to work as a mini Theatre Company following a pre-selected production in The Drum Theatre or inventing your own Creative Learning project from scratch.

COMPANY15 is for any Year 10 – 13 student aged 14 – 17, especially for those who are really interested in or studying Theatre, Design, Technical or Arts related subjects or would like to pursue a career in the theatre industry. We cannot take anyone under the age of 14.

Over the course of the week, COMPANY15 members will work with staff from different departments in the Theatre Royal Plymouth and at our Production and Learning centre, TR2.

Everyone taking part will be set a series of tasks throughout the week that are all related to a play on stage or your invented project. Each department will explore the length and breadth of the theatre world, covering each aspect of how people do their jobs.

The opportunity to take part in Company15 2019 has now passed, but applications to join us for next year will open in October.

Company 15 2019 will take place Mon 24 June – Fri 28 June 2019

Your schools or college’s work experience week might not be the same week as COMPANY15. It is up to you to find out whether your school or college can be flexible in letting you come at a different time before you apply.
