Freelance Drama Practitioners

Burnley Youth Theatre are looking to expand our pool of Freelance Drama Practitioners. Please see the range of opportunities we can offer practitioners:

YOUTH THEATRE PROGRAMME

We deliver regular weekly workshops and productions with children and young people aged 0 – 18 at our purpose built theatre in Burnley. Alongside traditional youth theatre workshops and productions, we offer specialist workshops for Early Years, people with disabilities and workshops focussing on LGBTQ+ issues, mental health and political theatre. We are looking for practitioners who have experience in youth theatre, can commit to regular work and are passionate about developing young people.

CREATIVE EDUCATION PROGRAMME

We work with a number of primary schools, secondary schools, special schools and colleges across Burnley, Lancashire and the North West, delivering Creative Education in their settings. Our work includes one off curriculum based workshops, term long themed projects, CPD for teachers and Arts Award projects. We are looking for practitioners who have experience working with schools, are familiar with the National Curriculum and are passionate about the value of the arts in schools.

OUTREACH PROGRAMME

We work in our local community with children, young people and families delivering issue based projects that respond to the needs of local people and are led by them. We work in partnership with local voluntary organisations, working with people from diverse backgrounds. We are looking for practitioners who have a background in Applied Theatre, have experience in working with diverse communities and are passionate about bringing about social change through the arts.
