Queensland Theatre is committed to providing high school aged students who are interested in the arts the opportunity to learn more about the day-to-day workings of the state theatre company.

During the residency, students will engage with a range of departments (Marketing, Production, Programming, Development, Education, Youth and Regional Engagement) giving access to the full range of different career pathways Queensland Theatre and the arts in general can offer.
