Masterclass runs an Apprentice Scheme in collaboration with the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company which launched in September 2007. The first season, artistically led by director Jonathan Kent, saw nine Masterclass apprentices work with the production team on The Country Wife, The Sea and Marguerite.
The Theatre Royal Haymarket Company returns to the stage at the beginning of 2009. Masterclass is delighted to again be offering young people the opportunity to work alongside the new team, led by director Sean Mathias on a thrilling production of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting For Godot, starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart.
The aim of the apprentice scheme is to open up opportunities for people who have already demonstrated a desire to work as a director, designer or technician / stage manager, but have yet to experience working on a large-scale West End production. Waiting For Godot will do a No.1 UK venue tour before transferring to the Theatre Royal Haymarket, making this an exceptional project to be involved in.
All apprentice posts are open to application from anyone aged 17 : 30 yrs not currently in education.
