Heres what previous applicants have said:
"I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so much for organising this week; everyone I’ve worked with has been fantastic and I’ve gained so much more insight and confidence from it than I expected to (and I hoped to gain quite a lot in the first place). I’m especially grateful to Christabel and Jo from Paines Plough for their workshops on producing and marketing, as their talks/workshops were really insightful and they gave us some great advice.
I’m especially glad I’ve gained experience in multiple departments of Cast because over the week I’ve learnt so much about this incredible theatre [...]
Finally, I wondered if you’d be able to pass my thanks on to Jo who oversaw our activities yesterday, as she gave me lots of great career advice, and to Penny and Lee who worked on the comedy club’s tech, as I had so much fun shadowing them and getting to see some wonderful performers, and they really looked after me too.
Again, thank you so much to you and everyone else at Cast for organising and leading this week, as it’s been so beneficial to me as an aspiring artist, and there’s so much more I know now than if I hadn’t stumbled upon the work experience application!" -Ellie
