Please email the organisers




40 years on from the first Theatre Show at The Donmar Warehouse, we are looking closer at how to help younger people increase their potential. We will be setting up a number of mentored clinics at the exhibition in 2018 to enable interested people to discover new opportunities.


Initially, we have identified four groups of people.




How this works...


You register you interest first. This is important because it will determine who we book as our mentors


Once we have a confirmed list of mentors, we will email you and invite you to book timed sessions. The sessions will be ticketed.



When students study Drama at GSCE level, there will always be some who identify with the technical side more than the performance elements of the course. Most people working in the industry can trace their initial interest to their time at school.


The ABTT Theatre Show offers to help teachers in their quest to support their students. One to one sessions will be set up where teachers can meet mentors with the information that they require.



At School


You may be studying Drama for GCSE. You may just be dead keen on theatre. It really doesn't matter as long as you have an interest in the technical and production side of the industry.


You can actually make a living in this industry and it starts right here!


Register your interest using the form below and make sure you put the show dates in your diary please!
