Booking open for TheatreCraft 2019 at the Royal Opera House

Published 9 July 2019

Booking is now open for TheatreCraft, the UK’s largest free theatre careers event for young people looking to explore offstage jobs in theatre, which takes place at London’s Royal Opera House on Monday 11 November.

Totally free and open to 16 to 30-year-olds, the day offers a unique glimpse into a wide range of non-performance careers from directing, stage management and producing to marketing, lighting and costume design. Attendees can take part in dynamic workshops with leading industry professionals, explore a Marketplace of exhibiting arts organisations and education providers, network with peers and potential employers and get one-to-one expert advice.

Whether students taking their first steps into a future career or young professionals looking for a job change, 16 to 30-year-olds are encouraged to book their free place via the TheatreCraft website.

Last year nearly 1000 young theatre enthusiasts attended, over 100 theatre professionals led workshops, talks and Q&A sessions, and 60 of the country’s top theatre companies, arts organisations and education providers exhibited in the careers Marketplace.

2019 marks TheatreCraft’s return to the Royal Opera House, following the completion of its extensive ‘Open Up’ renovation project to enhance public spaces and the opening of the new Linbury Theatre.

TheatreCraft was originally created by Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust (Masterclass) in 2003, and is organised in partnership with Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, Royal Opera House, Society of London Theatre and Mousetrap Theatre Projects.

Details of the event programme will be announced nearer the time.

Book your place now on the TheatreCraft website.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
