We are seeking a highly imaginative, motivated and experienced Theatre/Performance Director to create a brand-new festive show at Scottish Youth Theatre’s base in Glasgow for public performance in December.
We are welcoming applications from professional Theatre Directors who relish the opportunity to create exciting, imaginative and accessible theatre experiences for children and their families. The starting point is ‘Sno Snow! – introducing the conversation of global warming with young audiences. The Director, performers and creative team will work collaboratively to design, devise and/or write the final piece to a running time of 60 minutes. The production is fully supported with a bespoke production team and produced by Scottish Youth Theatre.
As part of Scottish Youth Theatre’s commitment to offer opportunities for young artists to train with professional theatre makers, we will be casting 3 performers and 1 assistant director aged 18-25 on our Trainee Programme (Auditions for the Trainee Programme will be announced shortly) The traineeship invites young artists to interrogate their own practice whilst receiving mentorship from the festive show Director and Scottish Youth Theatre’s Creative Producer. Therefore, the Director must have an interest in artist development and experience of working with young people.
