What’s the best way to get work as a theatre practitioner?
Amanda needs advice on getting freelance work
I would really like your advice on getting work as a Drama Practitioner. When I was younger I always knew that I wanted to work in Theatre and Radio, I just wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do!
While I was studying acting I realised that I would really like to run my own theatre company and work as a drama practitioner (the man reason for this was that it would enable be to have a varied career!)
I have now set up my own stage school and I run after school drama clubs for several local schools (I would like to expand on this later to include adult classes, exams and productions).
I have also been involved in radio and am currently recording an intro for Heart Radio. However I would really like to work for theatres and theatre companies (touring as well) as a practitioner/freelancer. Are you aware of any companies that I could work for?
What's the best way to get work as a practitioner and freelancer?
Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
