 Graduate Statements

 

"I cannot recommend this internship more highly. During my time at the King's Head I was entrusted with real responsibility and the support and guidance to help me carry out my work. The warm and friendly staff made me feel like a valued member of the team and were always on hand to provide a greater insight and understanding into their day-to-day work. OperaUpClose are such a pioneering company, full of energy and inspiration, you cannot help but be swept along by their buzz and excitement during pre-production! For anyone wishing to pursue a career within producing, this is a first-class internship. You will walk away with real experience, understanding and greater confidence to move forward in your chosen profession."

Stacey Permaul, 2012


"Spending three months as an Assistant Producer intern at The King's Head Theatre was an incredibly enjoyable and informative experience. I was pleased to discover, on the very first day, that I would be entrusted with real responsibilities if I wanted to take them on. Being given the opportunity to do real work for the theatre was crucial in developing my understanding of the industry and building my confidence to interact with theatre professionals. On top of this brilliantly practical learning method, I found everyone in the offices to be welcoming, fun and happy to offer as much help as I could want. Since my internship, I have produced a fringe show of my own and hope to continue to do so once I've finished my final year at Uni. "

Patrick Duncombe, 2011


"I applied to the King's Head because I wanted as much hands-on experience as possible, and I wasn't disappointed. You're thrown in at the deep end, and have the opportunity to try all aspects of producing, with plenty of feedback and guidance. The skills you get out of such a short time are priceless, and it's a great springboard to other opportunities within the company and elsewhere."

Rachel Lerman, 2011


This internship provides incredible insight into the industry and a chance to express and challenge your strengths and weaknesses in all aspects of production. The intern is given room to create and launch their own projects and ideas for the venue and it's visiting companies. I loved having real responsibilities and being an important part of The King's Head Theatre team.
Amy Novadnieks, 2014
