How can I be a youth theatre director?

Lucy want to know more about working in youth theatre.

I would really like your advice please regarding getting a position in a theatre as a Youth Theatre Director. I have quite a lot of experience in this area and have all the relevent training (I also run my own Theatre company). I have written letters to theatres expressing my interest: is this the right thing to do? What else can I do? 

Thank you very much for your time and I eagerly await your reply.

My suggestion would be to offer your services free of charge for a short while, so they get to know you.

All Theatres are short of funds, show them what you can do.

Hope this helps
