Show time: Fifty students to work at York Theatre Royal

tftvOver 50 students from the University are working with a London theatre company on a set of productions at the York Theatre Royal.

Students from the Department of Theatre, Film and Television (TFTV) are collaborating with Company of Angels on ‘Theatre Cafe’, a popular event that showcases newly translated plays from across Europe, working closely with the professionals on every stage of the production to develop six plays for an English-speaking audience.

Dr. Tom Cantrell, a lecturer in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television, commented on the project and its potential benefit for students’ employment prospects:

“This is a great opportunity for our students. Our undergraduate BA students will have the opportunity to collaborate with industry professionals, to learn from them, and to gain the experience of working on professional productions.”

‘Theatre Cafe’ will be performed from 26th February – 1st March at the York Theatre Royal and is open to the public and industry experts.
