WORK EXPERIENCE WEEK: SPEND A WEEK WITH YOUR STATE THEATRE COMPANY!

"Being immersed in STC’s Work experience week gave me a first- hand experience of the various theatrical departments involved in running a theatre company. This was a magnificent opportunity, I cannot recommend it highly enough for students who have a passion for the arts!" Zoe Castorina, Work Experience participant 2018

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 an informal presentation. 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, develop theatre making skills and foster the next generation of arts industry professionals. Read more about the experiences of previous Work Experience Week students here

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