TheatreCraft 2019 is coming!

If you are aged 16-30 (or know others who are), and have an interest in the theatre as a potential future career, then you simply cannot afford to miss the invaluable, totally FREE, once-a-year event that is TheatreCraft 2019.

This year, on Monday 11th November, the doors of the Royal Opera House will open to the main event, with a wide range of events featuring top industry names, all ready to share their thoughts and insight with you. And with dozens of bookable workshops happening at half a dozen nearby theatres, there is a huge range of things to do and participate in.

TheatreCraft is the only major event focused on offstage careers, in other words anything but acting. Lighting, Directing, Choreography, Writing, Sound, Music, Costume, Props, Stage Combat, Stage Management, Venue Management and more are all represented. Workshops allow a rare opportunity to hear firsthand from experts about what they do and how they do it. In most events there is also time for questions from the audience, so you can get more involved.

Having been a small part of the management of this event for the last three years, I can tell you firsthand that there is no better place to go to boost your knowledge and meet thousands of like-minded people. It’s a great day which you should not miss!

The day itself is run by a fantastic team of fun, hard-working volunteers and the industry participants all give their time free to be involved. You can learn more about being a TheatreCraft volunteer here

TheatreCraft is organised by a group of committed partners from across the creative and cultural industries: the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, the Royal Opera House, the Society of London Theatre and Mousetrap Theatre Projects.
