You seem to be setting your sights a little high. If it's work experience your after, it's best to go down the community route because they'll probably let you be a bit more hands-on. If you contact big names, they may be happy to offer a bit of insight, but their advice will probably be to get involved in community/am dram, as lame as it sounds. Check out ed departments of theatres of theatre companies around where you are. Chichester has a good one, as does Sheffield. Writing to renowned theatre directors won't get you as far as actually starting at the bottom and getting involved will.
