This year we are offering 15 students, aged between 14-18 (Year 10 through to sixth form) work experience placements from Mon 24 - Fri 28 June 2024.

Over the week we will lift the lid on all of the roles needed to run a theatre! You will work alongside Live Theatre's creative production, finance, marketing, front of house, technical & production, script writing and education departments.

You will also have the opportunity to work as an ensemble theatre company, developing your performance skills and work together to devise a short theatre piece over the week.

There are 15 spaces available.

Exeter Phoenix are looking for a dynamic, pro-active and energetic individual aged between 18-30, to join their small and ambitious team.

You will be passionate about delivering brilliant, inclusive and impactful events. You will also believe in communities coming together to learn and share ways to act on our climate responsibilities through natural world storytelling.

Are you a dedicated and hard-working performing arts undergraduate seeking experience at a dynamic theatre?

The bursary grant is from £125 per week, with free accommodation to those who need it. You and your fellow students will be able to enjoy the ambience of the village community and amazing scenery. There are 10 places up for grabs. It would be a bonus if you owned a drive (not compulsory) as the theatre is in a rural setting.

To apply, please email Sadie at the email address below.

Deadline: 1 April 2024

Level up your skills in Theatrical and Media Makeup with a Level 3 qualification at Hugh Baird College. This is a technical qualification for anyone that wants to pursue a career providing hair and Makeup services in the film, TV, theatre and fashion industries. Push your creative boundaries and explore your options in this exciting space.

You’ll advance on the skills learned in the Media Makeup Level 2 course, with new technical modules including media Makeup, wigs and creative prosthetics (SFX). This course delves into fashion and editorial styles, where you’ll add skills like camouflage (covering up scars and tattoos), theatrical Makeup, period hair and Makeup, and advanced face and body art to your portfolio. You’ll also get to grips with current tools and equipment, with a focus on airbrushing to high industry standards.

The Level 3 Theatrical and Media Makeup course balances practical learning with theory. The theory arm comprises health and safety, anatomy and physiology, and cosmetic Makeup science.

A favourite unit among students, you’ll get the opportunity to build a total character. You’ll bring a particular concept to life, taking ownership of everything from face casting to sculpting, and creating and applying prosthetic pieces. You’ll be expected to blend your character’s face with Makeup and a wig or bald cap, and present your work in your portfolio.

Hugh Baird College students get the opportunity to take part in regional competitions across a range of categories, including bridal Makeup, editorial Makeup, face and body art, and face painting.

Beyond the classroom, you’ll get to visit art galleries and theatres for character development inspiration. We’re big on community at Hugh Baird College, so you can get involved in local events to see how they run, such as Halloween events and shows in Sefton Park.
