English Touring Theatre & Stage One Create 18 month Apprenticeship
15 February 2016
We are thrilled to announce ETT is teaming up with Stage One, a charity dedicated to nurturing the next generation of theatre producers in the early stages of their career, to create the first 18 month Apprenticeship scheme for a budding producer.
The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work across a range of projects, working closely with the senior management and play an instrumental role within ETT's production and touring department.
Our director Rachel Tackley, has said, "I'm thrilled that together Stage One and English Touring Theatre are investing in the next generation of exciting theatre producers. The next 18 months will be an immensely busy time for ETT; producing 3 world premieres and 4 major revivals. During their residency our apprentice will collaborate with some of the best theatres in the country and will produce work in London and across the UK. What's not to love?"
And Joe Smith, Chief Executive of Stage One, said, "We are delighted to be working with English Touring Theatre and creating a new apprenticeship for an aspiring commercial producer. ETT have always supported the work that Stage One do and are an organisation that has strong ties with the commercial theatre sector. It will be a fantastic opportunity for an up and coming producer to learn the ropes alongside the management team at ETT. The apprenticeship offers a unique opportunity for Stage One to identify and support the most ambitious and promising producers by offering them hands-on training in all aspects of production within this dynamic organisation."
James Quaife, Stage One alumni and Producer of English Touring Theatre, said "Stage One has played such a vital role in my development as a professional theatre producer. The support, encouragement and opportunities that Stage One are able to offer, both financial and in career development are invaluable to new and emerging theatre producers.
Applications are open until 5pm Tuesday 1st March.
