The Everyman and Playhouse are 2 buildings with many audiences and communities, brought together by a sincere belief that theatre at its best transforms lives. In October 2014, the Trustees of The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation awarded them a grant over 3 years towards their Young Directors and Young Producers programme which offers young theatre makers on the brink of their careers professional opportunities and on the job experience. The young participants will learn script analysis, rehearsal structure and approaches to working with artists, supporting the theatres' Artistic Director and Associate Director on productions and directing the Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP) actors, technicians and communicators.
