Work Experience

I enjoyed everything. My experience was just amazing and all the staff were so kind. Overall, this is a fantastic experience for anyone who is interested in working in theatre. I could not be more pleased!

At Dundee Rep Theatre our Work Experience programme operates on a carousel system providing each young person with the opportunity to spend a morning and afternoon in a different department of the theatre over the course of a week. This creates a diverse timetable of activities, giving a broad overview of the variety of jobs available in the theatre.

Where possible, our carousel Work Experience covers the following departments:

  • Creative Learning
  • Press and Marketing
  • Scenic Design
  • Scottish Dance Theatre
  • Sound and Lighting
  • Stage Management
  • The Ensemble (Acting and Directing)
  • Wardrobe

Our programme and all levels of the building are accessible to all students, including wheelchair users, and we invite applications from interested secondary pupils from S3 upwards.
