TAKEOVER ‘09 is a new festival where young people (under 26s) take control of York Theatre Royal for three weeks and handle the programming and running of the building! If you’ve ever wondered what it must be like to work in a theatre then this is your chance to ﬁnd out!
Good Question Bob! Lots of stuff!!! The theatre needs all sorts of people to stay open; directors to accountants, lighting technicians to administrators, cooks to marketing executives - even people to design leaﬂets like this one. All of these roles are available for you to have a go at!
Yes you can! All you need to be is aged between 11 and 26. Just ﬁll in the form on the back of this ﬂyer and we’ll contact you! Oh and don’t forget that York Theatre Royal will be giving you full support in your job throughout the festival. Also if you’d like to be part of a planning group for this project then let us know
LETS LOOK AT SOME EXAMPLES!
and we’ll get you involved in overseeing the whole project!
