Men in Black Award

for outstanding work backstage

It doesn’t all happen in the glare of the spotlights…without dedicated backstage crew, the shows wouldn’t run as smoothly. Every now and again, one of our volunteers gets plucked out of the shadows to celebrate their usually unsung efforts.

Innovations Bursary

Innovations Theatre School has long had the mission of nurturing young performers. We also want to encourage and support those who wish to pursue further training in performance and production.

The Bursary is available to any student who has been with the school for at least two years and left the school no more than five years before the time of application. The award is open to anyone undertaking a full-time professional training course in a performance-related field. As well as the disciplines of dance, acting or singing, this may include (but not be restricted to) design or direction for stage or screen, stage management, radio, film or television production.

We awarded our first Bursary in May 2017 to Lily Henrich Doyle, a student who has won every award available in Innovations and who worked as a student teacher with us in her final two years. She is now taking up a place at Liberties College in Performance – Drama. We are delighted to be able to help her out as she makes this next step in her training.
