Work Experience Week: spend a week with your state theatre company!

Twenty five Drama students in Years 10 and 11 from across NSW have the opportunity to participate in our immersive, interactive Work Experience Week.

Work Experience Week enables students to explore many facets of STC and gain a broad understanding of the workings of a theatre company. Each day focuses on a different STC department, including programming, direction, set and costume design, marketing and corporate sponsorship. Working in groups, students complete activities in the roles of different creatives and STC staff, and present their ideas in informal presentations. Students participate in tours, panel discussions, workshops and activities run by STC staff and creatives.

STC offers a regional scholarship, covering the cost of travel and accommodation up to $1500, to enable a student from regional NSW to participate.

The program endeavours to inspire a love and appreciation of the theatre-making process, as well as foster the next generation of arts industry professionals.

We strongly encourage students who are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and those with disabilities to apply.

"STC Work Experience was truly an experience of a lifetime! The week taught me so many things that I use every day and will continue to for the rest of my life."
