Training in Musical Theatre

Training in Musical Theatre

The Training in Musical Theatre scheme was designed to support talented and motivated musical theatre students who are in financial need and struggling to pay their tuition fees. Previous grant winners include many West End performers in shows like Mamma Mia!, Wicked and The Lion King.

This year, in order to make the process more streamlined and cost effective we decided to award the money to directly UK colleges and drama schools that provide musical theatre training. The colleges themselves will then distribute this funding to talented students who are able to demonstrate that they would benefit most from the financial support.

We hope to award up to £150,000 via the scheme. Applications for the scheme are currently being assessed and successful colleges and students will be announced here in the coming months.

This grant is now closed.
