Our Brief

Get Into Theatre wants everyone to know about how to get a career in theatre no matter their background, ethnicity, impairment, condition or gender.

Before the website was created a range of people from different and diverse communities (including people with disabilities) were consulted to understand what stops young people getting into careers in theatre.

One of the key findings from the consultation was that access to information is the key to help more young people find out about opportunities to enter the industry.

Recite Me toolbar solution. Audio, styling, reading, translation icons.

Our Solution

The Recite Me toolbar was added to Get Into Theatre to let anyone view and use the website in a way that is fully accessible and inclusive for them, regardless of their background or their circumstances.

Recite Me lets people change elements like the font size, the font colour and background colour contrast, as well as giving the option to have the text read out aloud, or translate it into over 100 languages.
