Paid Internship for QMUL student/alum: Theatre Management Intern

Tooley Street, London Bridge | 70hrs at £11.05/hour | part-time

Told by an Idiot is a theatre company that makes inclusive, ambitious, and experimental theatre for anyone who breathes. We consistently experiment with what theatre can be and who gets to make it, in doing so our work blurs the line between theatre maker, participant, and audience. We nurture the skills and talents of emerging theatre makers and our work excludes no one. This internship is designed for anyone who has an interest in theatre management or producing and wants to gain experience working within a small team for a touring theatre company. We acknowledge that it can be difficult to gain experience in arts admin and management and want to extend our values of nurturing emerging talents to all aspects of making theatre, including organisational roles.
