If you are looking to develop your skills further our in-depth Young Creatives programme is for you. Working along industry professionals you will learn skills that will equip you for future careers in the creative industries.

Young Playwrights (S3-21yrs)

Focusing on script writing for theatre, you will work with a playwright to develop your own writing style and scripts which will then be showcased in an end of year production.

Creative Assistants (16-21yrs)

During this 30 week traineeship you will work alongside a professional Horsecross Tutor to learn and develop the skills needed to create and deliver a dynamic Youth Theatre, singing or dance workshop programme. As part of the traineeship you will have the opportunity to lead warm-ups, specific exercises and, in term three, work towards delivering a whole workshop yourself.
