The Young Company is an exciting opportunity for anyone aged 14-25 to be part of the Royal Exchange, with exclusive access to workshops, masterclasses, production opportunities and free tickets to all our main house shows.
From September, we will work with 120 young people as Digital Content Creators, Directors, Facilitators, Performers, Producers, Technicians and Writers. Membership to the Young Company lasts 12 months, providing in-depth training and practical opportunities supporting company members to develop, create and grow at the heart of this producing theatre.
We recruit once a year, via practical recruitment workshops and an online application form. Recruitment for 2017/18 is now live, with workshops taking place in June & July 2017. We’ll be welcoming hundreds of young people into the building to find out more about the Royal Exchange and to give a taster of what Young Company membership offers.
To get an idea of what we do and to find out more about from our current members, watch our Behind The Scenes film here:
We’ll also be posting lots of new videos and interviews via social media over the coming weeks, so keep a look out for more information.
