For students thinking about a career in the creative industries, a work experience placement with NORPA is a fantastic place to start. Places are limited, and fill up quickly, so get in early.
We offer four week-long work experience opportunities, every year to secondary students keen to explore their potential creative careers. Work experience dates are scheduled at the beginning of each year to align with the company’s creative development periods, rehearsal periods and during the presentation of the season productions, to maximise students’ exposure to the diverse workings of the company and Lismore City Hall.
During their week at NORPA students will experience the internal workings of a professional theatre company and performing arts venue, their days will include working alongside the technical, administrative and creative teams on a variety of projects. NORPA staff are keen to share their love of theatre with young people and can answer questions about how to begin working towards a career in a highly creative, exciting and rewarding industry.
NORPA also offers internship places to support the professional development of artists, producers and theatre technicians.
