Applications for the 2018 Work Experience programme open Tuesday 1 May 2018.

Students in Years 10 and 11 are invited to apply for one week of Work Experience at Bell Shakespeare HQ in Sydney.

Twelve students from around Australia will be selected to join the Company to go behind the scenes and discover how a working theatre company operates. Meet our team and learn about production casting, design, rehearsals, marketing, box office, fundraising, election and administration.

Students will attend live performances, explore backstage, undertake group projects, listen to panel discussions, interview staff and participate in practical workshops.

The 2018 programme will focus on our national touring production.

Entry by application. Students in regional/interstate schools are encouraged to apply, however Bell Shakespeare is unable to cover travel and accommodation costs.


Applying students must download the application form on the right hand side of the page, and submit:

A completed application form.

What is your personal connection to Shakespeare?
