Schools Work Experience Programme
During the holiday periods (exc. February half-term) we tour South London and SE England with our Family Holiday Activities. We invite our host schools to nominate 2 students (Actor and Front of House/Stage Management) who will benefit from working with our team of actors gaining valuable life skills’ experience.
The students will receive guidance and support throughout our visit and during performances. The day begins with a rehearsal of the play and songs – we will supply pre-recorded Voice Output Communication Aids, if needed. The student will receive a link to our advance pack. They will be involved in all participation moments and will receive mentoring and guidance on how to involve audience members into our interactive show.
Moira Burnish, our disabled Student Work Experience Programme Assistant, may attend.
Moira has previously acted on the programme and will be able to give help and reassurance, where needed.
