National Theatre : Theatre First

Theatre First is a project that gives year one school children their first introduction to the theatre. I worked on it as my placement in the National Theatre Project Management Production Department. I was involved as a DSM in the rehearsal room as it was a devised piece, as well helping during tech and writing risk assessments. It was a great opportunity to discover the inner function of the National. I really enjoyed my time there as it opened my eyes to departments that I normally never would have been able to look into.

We were all struck by how suited to the planning side of theatre you are and I think this will be a great area of work for you to go in to. The thoroughness that you have and the recording skills will stand you in very good stead.
