School leavers from South Holland have the chance to apply for funded places to study musical theatre.

Wildcats Post 16 Academy, based in Stamford, has expanded to be able to offer a number of young people in this area the chance to apply for a place on the BTEC Extended Diploma in Musical Theatre.

The course begins in September 2015, so is suitable for those going into Year 11 this September.

It’s a two-year course specialising in training students in the three disciplines of singing, dancing and acting.

Those taking place are also entered for LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) grades alongside the BTEC qualification.

Support is also given for transport to and from the Academy in Stamford, with a means tested bursary system in place to help pay for those costs.

Students on the course will perform in the West End at least twice, as well as a number of large scale musical theatre productions.

The academy has a 100 per cent pass rate, with many students achieving the highest grade of Triple Distinction Star.

Caz Dolby, owner of Wildcats, said: “These funded places enable students who cannot afford the fees of a private theatre school the opportunity to train with industry professionals in a family environment.

“We are looking for students who have the commitment to want a career in the performing arts, and can make the most of the funding available. We are not just looking for the most talented, but also those with potential to go far.”
