ROYAL EXCHANGE YOUNG COMPANY 2014/15
OPEN MEETINGS – 28 & 30 MAY 2014
Dear Youth Group leader,
Please see below about recruitment sessions for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Young Company for 14 – 21 year olds.
We would be very grateful if you would circulate this information to the young people who you work with and encourage them to come along to one of the Open Meetings.
- Are you aged 14-21?
- Do you love theatre?
- Would you like to meet new people, gain in-depth training and work alongside professional theatre-makers?
The Young Company is the Royal Exchange Theatre’s resident company for young people aged 14 – 21. The 2014-15 Company will launch in September with groups for Young Performers, Young Writers, Young Design Technicians and Young Communicators (exploring marketing, publicity and social media). We are looking for young people with passion and enthusiasm who can bring new ideas and energy to the Royal Exchange Theatre. In exchange for your time and energy, the Royal Exchange Theatre will offer you professional training and mentoring.
- OPEN MEETINGS In May we are holding Open Meetings for young people who want to find out more about the Young Company. You don’t need to commit to anything by attending an Open Meeting and it isn’t an audition, it’s just a chance to find out what it’s all about! At the Open Meeting there will be opportunities to take part in taster activities in drama, writing and design, meet young people from this year’s Young Company, ask any questions and find out how to get involved.
We are holding Open Meetings on: Wednesday 28 May, 1:30 – 3pm Friday 30 May at 10:30am – 12pm, 1:30 – 3pm or 4 – 5:30pm
All sessions will take place at the Royal Exchange and we will meet participants in The Lounge in the Great Hall. Places are FREE but limited. To reserve a place please contact the Box Office on 0161 833 9833. After the Open Meetings we will open applications for the Young Company 2014-15. This is done via a simple form which will be available at the Open Meetings. Please note that to join the Young Company you must have turned 14 by 12 September 2014.
