British Theatre Academy Donations

Donation protected
The British Theatre Academy is a Youth Theatre programme providing free and affordable opportunities in Theatre for young people across the UK. Following the effects of Covid-19, the BTA offered 16 weeks of completely free virtual training to around 1,000 young Artists.

This fund was initially set up to secure the future of the BTA, and now that initial target of 45k has been has been reached we will be using all future/excess donations to offer free Bursary places to Young Artists.

As the producers of The Colour Purple concert at Cadogan Hall and Once On This Island and many other works, we have been proud to display work that amplifies voices for young people from Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic backgrounds. We have recently released a video of a reunion of our production of The Color Purple linking to this page. We will be using these bursaries to specifically help offer opportunities to students from these backgrounds, especially if finance is a direct limitation to access to training. 

We are grateful for all donations, and thank you for supporting The British theatre Academy, and protecting the future of Theatre in the UK.
