Become a Reviewer in Residence at Northern Stage

Posted by

After our first successful season of reviewing at Northern Stage earlier this year, we are opening up the programme again to young reviewers’ aged 15-23 who have an interest in gaining some in-depth theatre knowledge.

It’s a chance to hone your feature writing and critiquing skills through masterclasses and workshops with top professionals and to get up-close-and-personal with local theatre companies as an embedded reviewer. Reviewers in Residence will also get the opportunity to attend exclusive events at Northern Stage and have access to the whole Autumn programme. Reviews and features will be published on Cuckoo Review, and will have a chance to be published in The Journal and the 2015 print edition of Cuckoo Press.

A full programme will be published soon, but key dates for the diary are:

30 October 2015; 5.30pm-9.10pm:

Introduction to programme from Lorne Campbell (Artistic Director of Northern Stage) and then the group attends a performance of Beats North at 7:45pm

17 October, 2-5/6pm (end time TBC):
