Coventry theatre school offers high profile scholarship opportunity!

Making dreams come true, a local theatre school based in Coventry is once again offering an exceptional opportunity to win a year’s scholarship to receive award-winning performing arts tuition.

Razzamataz Coventry is part of the national network of theatre schools and is delighted to announce that their annual scholarship competition in association with The Stage newspaper officially opened on 1st April.

There are almost 60 schools across the UK taking part with the opportunity open to all young people from the ages of 6 to 18. Both existing students and those without formal training can apply, for the chance to win a year’s worth of training at their local Razzamataz school, worth up to £900. This is in addition to the other opportunities including taking part in the annual variety showcase, local performances, and specialist workshops.

As well as being offered a free place, the scholarship is a huge boost of confidence and can lead to amazing experiences such as performing in London’s West End! It has also changed the lives of past winners, giving them the confidence to pursue their dreams.

Robson Broad, a student at Razzamataz Medway, was one of the first scholarship winners. He is a former cast member of West End hit Hamilton, is part of the current cast to open West End show Moulin Rouge and appeared in the prestigious Royal Variety Performance.

“Winning The Stage scholarship gave me a huge boost of confidence and attending The Stage winners party gave me a little glimpse into what it would be like to be a professional performer,” says Robson. The opportunities that he got at Razzamataz has changed his life and he regularly returns to teach and inspire the next generation. “This has been a dream of mine for so long and I’m really grateful to all the people who have helped me get here,” says Robson. “It’s a tough industry but during my time at Razzamataz, I got to meet lots of performers through the special guest workshops and now it is incredible that I’m in that privileged position myself.”

With more 24 years in the sector, Razzamataz Theatre Schools has given many young people the confidence to achieve their dreams and ambitions, whether that is as a performer, health specialist, teacher or creative.

“After enduring the challenges and uncertainties of the last few years, we understand the significant toll on the mental well-being of children and young people,” says Kimisha Lewis, principal of Razzamataz Coventry. “At Razzamataz Coventry, our dedicated teachers and staff are committed to fostering a supportive environment where children can rebuild their confidence and resilience. We believe that nurturing these qualities is fundamental to unlocking their potential and empowering them to pursue their dreams with conviction.”

The audition process is simple, and it gives children without formal training the opportunity to apply. Those entering just need to film themselves performing in any (or all three) of the disciplines that Razzamataz teaches, which are singing, dance, and drama. The demo does not have to be professionally filmed and the judges are looking for raw talent and potential that they know can be refined through professional training at one of the schools. Applicants will also complete a short form detailing why they would like to take this opportunity.
