The School for Wise Children and Bristol Old Vic 

12pm – 4.30pm, Friday 29th October

Venue: Bristol Old Vic Theatre

Cost: Free!

Assistance with travel costs is also available if needed

The School for Wise Children and Bristol Old Vic have teamed up to give you a taste of what it’s like backstage on our epic show Wuthering Heights.


We’ll be inviting six emerging production professionals to the theatre to meet our team and learn sections of the show.


Who we are: Wise Children's production team is a vital, professional and playful part of the family. Our School runs workshops and courses to inspire the next generation of theatre makers.


Bristol Old Vic is the longest continuously running theatre in the English-speaking world committed to supporting the emerging talent of Bristol. We believe that creative opportunities should be embedded at the heart of every young person’s learning experience and that participatory arts can support young people on their life’s journey. 

Who we’re looking for: We want to meet people at the start of their career. You don’t need experience in mixing or showcalling, but you do need some experience backstage. You’ll be over the age of 18, will have had some training or some work backstage (including youth, community or amateur productions) and you’ll be looking to take your next step into the theatre industry.


We want to hear from emerging Stage Managers, Wardrobe, Sound, Lighting and AV Technicians, especially those based in Bristol and the Southwest, with an interest in touring.

The Taster workshop will include:

  • An introduction to Wise Children and Bristol Old Vic

  • A backstage tour of Wuthering Heights

  • A short break for lunch (bring a sandwich!)

  • Learning to showcall a section of the show with the Company Stage Manager

  • Learning to mix a section of the show with the Sound no.1



How to apply: Fill in this application form or upload a video of no longer than 3 minutes answering the three questions. For help recording your video click here. If you have any questions about the Taster, please contact

Wise Children and Bristol Old Vic strive to create a team that reflects the society we live in, and we encourage applications from those currently under-represented in the industry.


Applications will close at 5pm on Monday 18th October
