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.
