Experience Opportunity

Puppetry Traineeship

Little Angel Theatre is excited to offer a year-long Puppetry Traineeship.

We are really keen to hear from Global Majority applicants as well as those from other groups who are currently under-represented in this sector. This is a paid opportunity which combines on-the-job learning with specific, related training from experts in the field.

What we’ll offer you

- A 12-month paid puppetry internship which combines intensive training with on-the job opportunities to use the skills you have learnt.

- You will get the chance to build your skills, confidence and experience with a series of master classes from industry experts on making and working with puppets.

- One to one pastoral support from our In-House Designer.

Towards the end of the 12 months, you will be asked to design the set, puppets and props for your own digital short for Little Angel’s YouTube Channel. There is a budget for this which you will have to manage, as well as creating the physical aspects of the production.

Training will largely be on the job, with support and mentorship from our In-house Designer,

and through participating in the professional development and adult courses that they assist


You will also receive masterclasses in marketing, fundraising and other relevant skills. Your

time at Little Angel will give you an immersion in the puppetry and theatre communities as

well as offering many networking opportunities.
