For children with the drive and determination to make it in the world of performing arts, but who don’t have the training behind them, there is a fantastic opportunity to win a year’s worth of tuition.
Razzamataz Carlisle has joined forces with The Stage newspaper to offer scholarships to children and young people to attend the part time theatre school free of charge for one year, worth up to £855. The scholarship audition process opens on April 15 and closes 21 June so there is plenty of time to get involved.
To ensure as many youngsters as possible can enter, Razzamataz has created a scholarship system where students and potential students film a short demo of no more than two minutes long showing them performing either a musical theatre song and dance, commercial dance (hip hop or street), pop song, drama improvisation or scripted drama piece. The demo does not have to be professionally filmed. Applicants will also complete a short application form detailing why they would like to take this opportunity.
