Work experience, Placements and volunteering opportunities

Oxford Playhouse offers work experience placements throughout the year, we welcome students into our lively theatre and its various and vibrant departments. Students have the opportunity to try their hand in the Ticket Office, venture backstage, speak with industry professionals and create resources for the theatre that will be used by our audiences.

It is important to note that the standard work experience placement at Oxford Playhouse is administration and management focused. There is no opportunity for performance. Therefore, if you are interested in the whole process of running a theatre and presenting a varied programme of shows we look forward to hearing from you.

Group work experience dates at Oxford Playhouse for 2015 are:

Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July

Monday 13th July to Friday 17th July

We welcome applications from GCSE and A-Level students attending Oxfordshire schools interested in learning more about the workings of the theatre. We do accept applications from outside Oxfordshire but aim to offer a high proportion of placements to students who are locally based.
