The Royal Exchange Theatre has an ongoing commitment to nurture, support and inspire local directors and facilitators. We have recently become the northern hub for the Regional Theatre Young Director Scheme, a nationally acclaimed talent development programme, which complements our commitment to providing opportunities for next generation of directors at the Exchange.
With each season of shows and productions, the Royal Exchange Theatre also runs Observer Mondays, a unique opportunity for aspiring directors, theatre-makers and facilitators based in Greater Manchester to observe the journey of a production through rehearsals from the first day through to Press Night. They will receive mentoring from one of our Associate Artistic Directors, tickets to see the production and a one-to-one meeting with the director of the production.
“We are really excited to create an opportunity for theatre-makers in Greater Manchester to experience all the elements of creating a production and gain a greater understanding of the various processes and creative collaborations that bring work to our audiences." Sarah Frankcom, Artistic Director
