2021 Scholarships

We are thrilled to announce The Jeffrey, LR&M Constructions, ATAM and JAC Scholarships. These confidential scholarships are offered as a way of encouraging and supporting financially disadvantaged young people who have a passion to experience, develop and understand the workings of live theatre - but don't have the means to pay the production fee.

Wings2Fly Theatre believes in a no-barrier approach to the arts. No longer are young actors restricted by their financial situation; We want every young person who wishes to learn more and be part of a dynamic youth theatre group to have that chance. There are limited scholarships on offer for every production with Wings2Fly Theatre.

 

Criteria

  • Must come from a financially disadvantaged background.

  • Must show and provide details of a keen and active interest in the performing arts and in particular theatre.

  • Must be between the ages of 10-18 years on 1st Jan 2021 to audition for a major production with Wings2Fly; or 6-10 years to apply for a position with Wings2Fly Junior.

  • Must be willing to prepare and attend an audition for the nominated production/workshop. NB: There is no audition for the Junior program, applicants will be chosen based on their application alone.
