“Work Experience is an amazing opportunity to understand what happens here and to meet all the people that work in the building. You get to leave your legacy here at the Playhouse and gain experience through projects that will help you learn what it takes to be a part of this industry. Everyone is so supportive and helpful.”
Work Experience participant, July 2018.
Oxford Playhouse offers work experience placements throughout the year. We welcome students aged 14 to 19 into our lively theatre and its various and vibrant departments. Students have the opportunity to try their hand in the Ticket Office, speak with industry professionals and create resources for the theatre that will be used by our audiences.
It is important to note that the standard work experience placement at Oxford Playhouse is focused around administration and management. There is no opportunity for performance or to work within the Technical Department. Therefore, if you are interested in the whole process of running a theatre we look forward to hearing from you.
Upcoming placement weeks for 2019 are:
At present, we are unable to accept requests for dates outside of those displayed above.
