The Resident Director will work closely across the year with students of all ages at Magdalen College School, leading the weekly Theatre Academy sessions, devising and delivering a broad range of skills development workshops, as well as directing at least three of the school’s productions over the year. The Resident Director will usually take a school production, with a Sixth Form cast, to the Edinburgh Fringe during August.
