Work Experience at the Canberra Theatre Centre is a crucial first step to understand the performing arts industry and how it operates.

Canberra Theatre Centre offers Year 10 & senior school students a chance to spend a week in Canberra’s largest professional theatres, learning, developing, observing and participating in various areas of operation. The Canberra Theatre Centre is the major presenter for performing arts in the ACT. It comprises three theatre spaces, the Canberra Theatre, The Playhouse and The Courtyard Studio.

Students will spend time working out of The Courtyard Studio with a small group of passionate theatre makers, while learning from industry professionals across all areas of theatre, including directing, stage management, lighting, sound, mechanics, performance, design and more. Participants will also be given the opportunity to directly pursue their passion in theatre or stagecraft and design, direct or produce a pre-selected scene throughout the week.

Students will gain valuable feedback from industry professionals on the strengths and weaknesses of their own work and suggestions and adjustments to improve their processes in theatre production.

The CTC Creative Experience Program will run on the following week:

28 November–2 December 2022

You need to fit the following criteria:
• Be in Year 10 or above or a tertiary student (if work experience is a mandatory requirement to complete the relevant course)
• Demonstrate an interest in the performing arts
• Be available to do work experience at an allocated time

To apply for a placement students must complete all sections and submit the Work Experience Application Form. Interviews are conducted to select appropriate candidates.


The AIE Work Experience Program is a great way for secondary school students in years 10 to 12 to learn about the interactive entertainment and digital industries. The week will open the door to the range of career possibilities in the industry and allow students to get hands-on with the tools of the trade.

The Work Experience Program runs from 9am to 3pm over the course of a week and encompasses a range of activities including 3D animation, programming, QA testing and much more.

Due to the popularity of the Work Experience Program, we ask that interested students fill out the form below and tell us why they would like to do work experience at AIE. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
