Theatre Professionals Award National Scholarship To Budding Performer

1st August 2017

Theatre Professionals Award National Scholarship To Budding Performer

From Left to Right: Robert Hamilton, Jodie Hall, Victoria Ward, Carl Tracey

Now in its third year, a part-time theatre school franchise has once again supported its students in helping them achieve their professional dreams of working in the performing arts industry.

Students who attend one of the Razzamataz schools across the UK got the opportunity to compete for a scholarship to help finance the cost of studying performing arts at college. The Future Fund scholarship was created to support the schools’ hard working, dedicated and talented students and gives them the chance to audition in front of an experienced and talented judging panel.

The auditions were held at Pineapple Dance Studios in Covent Garden and were judged by a panel of independent performing arts specialists. Dancer and choreographer Robert Hamilton has a huge amount of experience in both the musical theatre and commercial genres. West End credits include, CATS, playing the lead Mr. Mistoffelees and FAME with the added responsibility of being Dance Captain. Robert’s commercial work includes The Brit Awards with Robbie Williams, Stars in Your Eyes, The Royal Variety Performance and Hyde Park with Kimberley Wyatt.

Alongside Robert was Victoria Ward who has a wealth of performing arts experience. She is currently performing in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre and is also co-producer of Upstage Productions who have produced pantomimes for the Radlett Centre for over ten years.

Actor and dancer, Carl Tracey was the final judge and an original member of the Go! Go! Go! Show. Carl also performs in many pantomimes, musicals, cruises and TV shows and has visited many of the Razzamataz schools with his specialist workshops.

Competing to win the scholarship were Lucas Cooper from Razzamataz Medway, Lorna Clark from Razzamataz Medway and Jodie Hall from Razzamataz Sutton Coldfield. Each candidate performed a song, dance and drama piece to demonstrate their versatility as performers.

The standard of this year’s entries was again very high but after much deliberation, the first prize of £3,000 was awarded to Lucas Cooper, age 17 from Razzamataz Medway with the other students offered £500 towards their own training.

Lucas has been offered a place at Reynolds Performing Arts College where he will be fine tuning all his skills to make him into a strong triple threat performer who is able to turn his hand to singing, dancing and acting.

The Future Fund is just one of the many opportunities that Razzamataz franchisees can take advantage of. Being part of a network of performing arts professionals, who combine their knowledge and contacts about the industry with proven business success, is a winning combination for successful theatre schools.

The growing network has almost 50 schools up and down the country and students, staff and Principals regularly take part in fundraising events to help towards the Future Fund.

What Our Franchisees Say

I don’t have a business background so after deciding to retire from professionally performing it was the memories of Razzamataz on Dragons’ Den that set the wheels in motion. I was really inspired by the brand and the business model and because it is a franchise business we receive a lot of help and support from Head Office as well as on-going training so I can make Razzamataz Barnet the success that I believe it can be. In the last 12 months, I have doubled my student numbers in a very competitive market and I have now clear plans on how I would like my business to progress this year.Michael French, Razzamataz Barnet

“It was 10 years ago that I left hairdressing and for anyone thinking that it is too late to change their careers I would say step out of your comfort zone and just do it. I never thought I would be able to and it’s the best thing I have done and wished I’d done it years ago!”Pam Dixon, Razzamataz Dumfries

“The support from Head Office is fantastic and they are always there to listen and to guide you through. You are getting advertising/marketing ideas, contacts and systems provided for you that you may not have if you were to open an independent school.”Amy Latchman, Razzamataz Rickmansworth.
