KS3 Make Theatre Days are a great opportunity to introduce students to backstage careers. By exploring the National Theatre’s practice through a backstage tour, handling professional props and costume, and a workshop on either lighting and sound, costume or set design, students will spend the day learning hands-on skills from professionals in the arts industry.
Make Theatre Days are £180 for state schools, bursaries are available. Due to limited capacity we do not offer these to independent schools. Alternatively, independent schools can book backstage tours directly with our Tours department or visit the National Theatre’s Archive.
Make Theatre Days are currently sold out for 2019/2020 academic year. To be added to the waiting list for Make Theatre Days from September 2020 onwards, please fill in our expression of interest form.
