For the last few decades, La Mama has offered a wonderful Work Experience program that has enriched the lives of students, writers, actors, directors and La Mama staff. A fantastic gateway into the arts community. Read below some past La Mama work experience students’ experience.
Doing work experience at La Mama was one of the most amazing, relaxing and influential times in my life. I learned of what it takes to run front of house and I viewed two pieces of theatre in my time there; one hilarious and one extremely intriguing and dramatic. This opened my eyes of what the industry is like… And I loved it!
Getting to watch a show each night was amazing. I have fond memories of everyone being so nice and relaxed. There was a great sense of everyone being a family. I could only wish to have had my experience there extended. There was also a sense of support from everyone being welcomed fully.
Wonderful volunteers in 2014
