The countdown has begun to TheatreCraft 2018, the UK’s largest free careers event for young people interested in offstage theatre jobs!
Ahead of the event, we’ve asked the six inspiring theatre makers who front the TheatreCraft 2018 campaign to give some insights into their chosen careers, the best advice they got when starting out, and why careers events like TheatreCraft are worth attending. Our first interview was with producer Debbie Hicks.
Next up in this fortnightly video series is Theatre Lighting Designer and Technician Rajiv Pattani, who spoke to us about starting out his career, the inspiring advice he’s received, and why TheatreCraft is so important for young people looking for guidance and ideas about an offstage job in theatre. Watch the video below to hear from Rajiv.
TheatreCraft 2018 will take place on Monday 19 November, 9.30am–4.30pm, at Waldorf Hilton Hotel.
If you’re aged 16-30 and want to explore the different theatre jobs behind the curtain, book your free place on the TheatreCraft website.
