Students from Richmond Park Academy will be getting an exclusive look behind the scenes at Richmond Theatre thanks to Creative Choices, a national programme of events run by Creative & Cultural Skills, the sector skills council for the creative industries in the UK.

On 23rd November, Richmond Theatre, throws open their doors for a day of hands-on activities for local school groups to learn about careers out of the spotlight from sound, lighting and stage management to marketing, box office and finance.

Aine Markey, Director of Careers at Creative & Cultural Skills, said: “It is our ambition for every young person in the UK to have access to industry-endorsed information, advice and guidance about careers in the creative and cultural industries.  Our programme of Creative Choices events is a key part of this, giving 15,000 young people a unique insight into the world of work offstage and backstage in prestigious venues.”
