About Us

We believe that all young people - no matter who you are - should have the same chance to have a career in theatre.

We believe you should have easy access to current information on:

  • Training and studying
  • Funding, scholarships and awards
  • Experiences that will help you
  • Theatre job profiles to inform you
  • Career progression, wages and fees

We are passionate about you hearing from other people that are like you and are working in theatre. But mostly, Get Into Theatre wants everyone to know about how to get a career in theatre no matter your background, ethnicity, ability or gender. Whoever you are, there are lots of things happening in the UK that can help you get into theatre. We believe you should know about it.
