 YOUNG PEOPLE 

If you're aged 11-18 with an interest in theatre then we'd love to hear from you. We welcome young people from any creative background and pride ourselves on having an open and inclusive environment where company members can meet new peers and create strong friendships. We encourage any new TYP'ers to come for a taster session to meet the team and experience our way of working before committing to anything. We're a friendly bunch so feel free to give us a call or drop us an email with any questions! 

 PARENTS 

At TYP, our relationship with the parents is extremely important. Over the past 12 months we've developed a strong community in Exeter and that is largely due to the support of the parents. We promote the same open dialogue with the parents as we do the young people and we're always happy to answer any queries over the phone, via email or in person. If you'd like to discuss your child with us or get to know the company a little better before bringing them along, please feel free to get in contact. 

 PROFESSIONAL WORK PLACEMENTS 

 WORK EXPERIENCE 

Are you aged 17-25 and looking to pursue a future in the arts? TYP are always on the look out for the right individuals to help grow our team. Whether you're a budding artist, producer, stage manager or director, if you like the look of our company then please email our Artistic Director, Lucy, to register your interest and we'll keep you up to date with any upcoming production opportunities. 

 FRIENDS OF TYP 

This year we're fortunate to be able to offer limited work experience placements to young people in secondary education. TYP wants to make this a bespoke opportunity for those involved - we want to hear what will benefit you! As we're such a small team, we will only take on young people with a driven interest in pursuing the creative industries in their future. To register your interest please email Artistic Director, Lucy Hirst. 

As a newly established company we're always looking for support from the community in order to make our goals a reality. If you have a service or donation you would like to offer, please contact Artistic Director, Lucy Hirst. In the mean time, keep your eyes peeled for a brand new friends scheme being launched in the coming months. Thank you for your continued support!
