A careers fair aimed at those looking for non-performance jobs in theatre kicks off this week.
Theatrecraft 2015 ambassador Indhu Rubasingham said: “This is a great opportunity for young people to realise that if you have a passion for theatre and don’t want to act, there are many, many creative ways to be part of this exciting industry.
“That was my journey, falling in love with theatre, but not knowing where I could fit in. I wish Theatrecraft had been around when I was a young person.”
The event is free for 16 to 25-year-olds.
Visitors can take part in workshops, explore a number of exhibitions and join in the ‘Ask the Experts’ zone.
In 2014, over 1,200 people attended the event.
The event is a partnership between the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Creative and Cultural Skills, Mousetrap Theatre Projects, the Royal Opera House & Society of London Theatre.
Arnold M. Crook, Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust Chairman, said: “Since its inception at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2003, TheatreCraft has been helping young professionals discover new routes into theatre and continues to help supply the industry with enthused behind-the-scenes talent.
“Ten inspirational events later and we are just as enthusiastic about our vision of supporting the development of aspiring theatre makers from all walks of life.
“They are the future of our industry; we owe it to them to offer our services where and whenever we can.”
Bookings for the different workshops are now open.
