How can you support Get Into Theatre?

Get Into Theatre has over 1,500 opportunities from more than 300 organisations, schools and theatres all over the UK and will change the way young people look at theatre. Our aim is to inform, advise and most importantly support young people with their career in theatre, but we can’t do it alone.

Get Into Theatre will only be a success through the support from organisations like yourselves and there are numerous ways you can show your support to make a change in our industry.

Upload your opportunities

Opportunities on the website will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Training - formal training courses which provide a formal qualification upon completion
  • Experience - workshops, apprenticeships, work experience, ticket schemes, and outreach projects. Training that does not result in a qualification
  • Funding - scholarships, awards and bursaries

If you are part of an organisation, school or theatre and you have an opportunity, upload it on our website here.

Alternatively, contact Gemma on Gemma@thestage.co.uk or 020 7939 8492

Enhancing your listing

Your opportunities are now listed on the website, that’s great! Now let’s make them stand out by enhancing them. When you upload an opportunity, basic course information is uploaded as standard. Enhancing your listings will give them greater prominence on the website and ensure they appear at the top of relevant search results. Your enhanced listing is 10 times more likely to show up in search results than standard listings. An enhanced listing includes the following:

  • Images - you can add a logo for your organisation and a gallery of images for each specific opportunity. (These images must be provided in PNG format)
  • Links - you can include a link, either to the homepage of your website or to each specific opportunity
  • Video - This can be a generic video for your organisation or specifically for the organisation. (Video must already be on YouTube)
  • A detailed description of the opportunity - you can include as much detail as you’d like including what the opportunity includes times, dates and entry requirements (if applicable)
  • You can even add a prospectus or any other documents you’d like

If you’d like to enhance your listing or for more information on how to do this please contact our sales executive:
