Red Ladder


Contact: Chris Lloyd, Artistic Director

This York based theatre company hosts one student on placement each year, but does not have a formal arrangement with the HE sector.

The arrangements are made by the undergraduate students and have to fit in with the company’s schedule. Although sporadic, the student may remain for as much as 70 hours over a 6 week period.

Currently, a student of theatre and film from Leeds Trinity is observing rehearsals and will produce video blogs. Another student of theatre and performance from Leeds University had a placement with the company developing the marketing for a show which was going to be performed at the university.

With only two members of staff, the company is only able to take on students in this ad hoc way, and always wants to ensure that the students really benefit from the experience.
