If you would like to be considered for future acting work with Northern Broadsides, please send casting correspondence to only please, we prefer submissions by email to save on resources, please do not post CVs. Watch this space for further announcements…


We are open to having observers in our rehearsals and offer work placements to students (over 16 years old) interested in various aspects of theatre (often Stage Management or Costume). We only produce two shows a year so places are very limited, but we still encourage you to enquire and apply for a place.

As requests for placements are high we are only able to accommodate a few people per year so those positions are offered to people with relevant experience, who have a genuine passion for a particular theatre discipline and who are actively considering careers in theatre.

Applications can be directed to Kay Packwood, Executive Director at Northern Broadsides:
