2021 Scholarships

We are thrilled to announce The Jeffrey Scholarship and LR&M Constructions Scholarship. These are offered as a way of encouraging and supporting 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.

 

Criteria

  • Must come from a 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 10-13yrs for the Jeffrey Scholarship and 14-18yrs for the LR&M Constructions Scholarship on 1st Jan 2021.

  • Must be willing to prepare and attend an audition for the nominated production/workshop.
