We offer work experience placements for Transition Year students. The programme is an inspiring week of activity for those with a strong interest in theatre. With access to every team, students attend talks and workshops and can observe the theatre’s staff at work. Where possible, students also have an opportunity to watch a live piece of theatre from behind the scenes.

Our Transition Year Programme 2020 will run from Monday 9 to Friday 13 March 2020. The deadline for applications was Thursday 21 November at 5pm. All applicants selected for the programme will be contacted directly no later than Friday 6 December 2019.

Transition Year Student, Jessica Hayes
“I really enjoyed seeing Waiting for Godot backstage and Theatre Lovett’s rehearsal and performance. Meeting people so passionate about theatre like Graham and Phil really instilled in me what working at the Abbey is really like. The props and costume tours around the building really added to the week as they complimented the various presentations. The group I was with was an added bonus, I was appreciative of the group’s diversity and interests in various areas of theatre. Thank you for exceeding my expectations.”
