Booking for TheatreCraft 2016 is now open. The annual free careers event is for anyone aged 16-25 looking for a non-performance job in theatre.
With its range of workshops, exhibitors and Q&A sessions, TheatreCraft offers a unique insight into many behind-the-scenes roles. From costume and make-up to producing and marketing, this event proves you don't have to be a performer to work in theatre.
Due to ongoing Open Up redevelopment at the Royal Opera House, this year's event will take place at the Waldorf Hilton Hotel in Aldwych, with workshops and talks happening at partnering West End theatres.
Executive Vice President of the Ambassador Theatre Group, Adam Kenwright, is the TheatreCraft 2016 Ambassador and will open the event on 14 November.
'As someone who first started in the business as a teenager and who has personally worked in the box office, back stage, front of house, publicity, casting, marketing and in production, I am excited and proud to have been chosen to be this year’s Ambassador for TheatreCraft,' says Adam. 'Helping young people discover the behind-the-scenes professions that make our great industry thrive is vital to the future of theatre.'
TheatreCraft is organized by a group of committed partners from across the creative and cultural industries; the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, the Royal Opera House, the Society of London Theatre, Mousetrap Theatre Projects and Creative and Cultural Skills.
