Young Directors Programme
Every year we offer the chance for our 14+ year olds to take part in our Young Directors Programme. This opportunity allows 2 budding directors to cast and direct a show of their choice each, with the support and guidance of Group 64, culminating in a 3-show run at Putney Arts Theatre.
This unique opportunity is ideal for any of our young people with an interest in directing who needs a starting point and wants to gain experience of what it takes to direct a show.
Choosing a suitable script, running auditions, casting, creating a rehearsal schedule, running rehearsals, sourcing props, music, and costume.
Applications are usually open in May, to begin rehearsals in September.
Past Young Directors shows include:
Brainstorm, I Don't Want To Talk About It, Flies, Punk Rock, Notes to Future Self, He’s Talking, Yes and No, Journey to X, My Face, DNA, The Exam.
We also offer 2 Young Directors a year, an opportunity to assistant direct the children’s summer productions whilst gaining a Silver Arts Award.
