Our musician auditions are free of charge. If you are successful in joining a production, there is a course fee, which are heavily subsidised by the funding we receive. Furthermore, we operate a Bursary Scheme that offers bursaries of up to 75% of the course fees. Anyone who has a gross household income of up to £40,000 per year is eligible to apply.
The course fees for musicians usually range from £500 - £1000. This covers:
Training from excellent professional Creative Team
Care from our Pastoral Team
All meals, drinks and snacks
A contribution to theatre costs, marketing and our overheads
We appreciate this is a substantial amount of money and have developed a number of ways of addressing funding issues:
All course fees can be broken down into smaller instalments across several months, and we are happy to consider longer payment plans if necessary.
We have developed a [guide] to help young people fundraise from a huge variety of sources - their school, local trusts, Rotary/Lions clubs, local business sponsorship, events and donations from friends and family.
If you have any funding issues, please call the office on 020 8563 7725 and speak to the office. We are always here to provide advice and guidance. Rest assured that nobody will ever be excluded for financial reasons.
