The Playhouse Music Theatre Company offers young people aged 16-25 years old sustained access to high quality industry-endorsed training that champions a 'learning by doing’ approach.
For local young people with the potential to work professionally in the arts from backgrounds underrepresented in the wider sector, this music Theatre programme provides an alternative training and developmental pathway.
Free to attend, members of the Playhouse Music Theatre Company receive access to ongoing training in voice, movement and acting; a programme of 1-1 and companywide technical coachings; audition skills development sessions; voluntary performance opportunities; professional Equity contract auditions; network building opportunities; and additional pre-professional skills building workshops- all delivered by industry professionals.
The Playhouse aims to use its influence, connections and expertise in music, theatre, community and education to offer local young performers a means to continue with pre-professional training and support them to gain and maintain the necessary experience to continue their artistic path onwards to higher educational training and/ or conservatoire education or join the creative workforce directly upon graduation.
The Playhouse is proud to have worked with Equity to co-design and agree an independent in-house union agreement which supports this training programme alongside strengthening the rights and conditions of our professional performers and stage managers.
