The Tron Ambassadors scheme gives pupils the chance to be behind-the-scenes at a working theatre. It enables young people to make a deeper connection with the Tron and gain a better understanding of the industry. As well as providing participants with opportunities to take part in workshops, tasks, and interviewing and observing industry professionals, we also want our Ambassadors to understand the transferable skills they are learning which can be applied to any career path they choose to take when leaving school.
Previous Ambassadors have worked on marketing campaigns, social media calls, tweet meets and written reviews, press releases and direct mail letters. They have toured the building, met with Tron Staff, shadowed front of house and production staff and had mock auditions with the Artistic Director. Ambassadors have said that being involved in the scheme has been an enjoyable and educational experience that they would recommend to others to gain all important CV experience and industry connections.
Recruitment for the next intake will open in May 2018 with workshops beginning in August 2018. There is no cost to be involved.
