I am currently working on a gaining a work experience placement I have looked into the National Theatre and The Almeida Theatre both in London. The Almeida Theatre is currently offering a Stage Management work experience which I have applied to and now have to wait a month to see if I have been accepted on the work experience. Over the Christmas break I also plan to approach theatres within Birmingham and speak to relevant people in regards to this part of the module

Following up my work experience at The Rep Theatre, Birmingham I sent out an email to them 3 weeks ago and have found out that they are now going into their Christmas Period and if I haven’t heard anything then they aren’t needing anyone for this period of time.
I will need to look at other placements in order for me to gain a work experience placement for this particular module.
I have been looking into doing work expereinece within Birmingham, as this is where I am from and would like to work in the future, I have looked at doing it at theatres such as The Rep Theatre, The New Alexandra Theatre and The Birmingham Hippodrome. I have chosen these theatres as I haven’t worked with anyone from there so this would be a great networking opportunity for me if I got a placement within one of these theatres.
The Rep Theatre is more of an place for acting where as the Hippodrome and The Alexandra Theatre is both Acting, Musicals and Dance as I would like to work on Musicals I think that it would benefit me more to work at the Hippodrom or The Alexandra theatre.
