18-25? Want a Career in Theatre?
TYPT puts emerging theatre makers aged 18-25 together with established artists to develop their practice, test ideas and produce a brand new piece of theatre in just 4 weeks each summer. We provide opportunities both offstage and onstage.
Whether you are a performer, writer, stage manager, designer or technician, every element of the TYPT process will be open to you from initial production meetings to script development sessions; from meetings with graphic designers to the get-out.
Taking part is free. TYPT is open to participants aged 18-25 only.
Please note - we are not accepting applications for TYPT this summer as we will be moving to Croydon. TYPT will return in 2020
Applications for TYPT will re-open in 2020
