Theatre Cloud brings back successful young reporter scheme for it's second year.

All your work will be published and credited with your very own byline!

Check out what our previous young reporters are saying:

"I had a wonderful time as the Theatre Cloud young reporter...seeing my work published on Theatre Cloud gave a real sense of achievement...it's one-of-a-kind work experience that will really stand out on CVs,  I could not recommend it enough."
Laura Jayne Bateman, Northampton Royal and Derngate young reporter

"The knowledge and insight gained through the Young Reporters Scheme is infallible, the one-on-one talks with directors and actors, coupled with the amazing production I had the chance to witness is just an experience which set me, in brilliant fashion, up for a career in journalism."
Raza Khan, Bradford Alhambra young reporter

"The scheme is really flexible so if you’re thinking of not applying because you’ve got other commitments, such as a job, don’t let that stop you. I certainly didn’t! I love writing, I love the theatre, and I love history, so this opportunity provided me with a chance to fuse the three, and produce some work that I’m grateful to finally be able to showcase."
Madison Wales, Nottingham Theatre Royal young reporter
