An extended placement at Northern Stage is a fantastic way to gain hands on experience in a particular department.

Suitable for school leavers, college or university students or recent graduates, we offer placements in Production, Communications and Participation. As far as possible, we will try to tailor placements but we try to make them as hands on as possible. Each department has slightly different requirements and timescales so do make sure you read the information before sending your application.

For more information about each department, please read the documents below:

Generally your application will need to be received two months before you would like the placement to start. Demand for placements is high. If you are short listed you will be contacted and may be invited to come in for an informal chat or answer a few additional questions over the phone.

Your completed application form should be sent to Philippa Crossman at or by post to  Northern Stage, Barras Bridge, Haymarket, Newcastle, NE1 7RH.
