TEENAGERS dreaming of success on stage or screen have the chance to secure a scholarship at LMA.

For the second year running the Liverpool-based university specialist centre is inviting anyone aged between 14 to 19 to compete for a place on its year-long programme.

Worth £2,500 each, the scholarships are available across LMA's portfolio of courses; acting, digital film and production, games art and animation, musical theatre plus music performance and industry.

Principal Richard Wallace – who founded LMA with his brother, Simon, and created the scholarship fund in 2018 as part of LMA’s 10th birthday celebrations – said: “LMA has rapidly become a real landmark for talent in Liverpool and we’re extremely proud of our students’ achievements.

“Over the past 10 years, our alumni have gone on to work with the BBC, star in West End shows, released critically-acclaimed albums and become major players in the gaming industry, and we’re confident that this track record will continue.

“Our scholarship programme is now in its second year and it’s proven to be a fantastic way to introduce talented individuals to all we have to offer, helping them to perfect their craft and access training that is truly second to none.”

Youngsters can apply online now with successful applicants invited for audition or pitch on June 29.

A judging panel will then choose 100 youngsters for the programme which will see them receive expert training every Saturday from September.

Simon Wallace said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time for LMA as our students are fresh from sharing the stage with the original stars of Fame, securing voiceover roles as The Beatles, and so much more.

“We’re proud of our family culture and it’s something that we instil in both students and tutors, so we’re looking forward to welcoming new members of the family with the scholarship programme.”

The scholarship launch follows an exciting start to 2019, as a group of LMA students were selected to perform alongside the original cast from TV series Fame, as part of the Fame UK Reunion concerts in Liverpool earlier this month.

Four acting students were also chosen by film giant Warner Bros to voice The Beatles in upcoming Polish-made film, BB Forever, which tells the story of Hollywood star Brigitte Bardot.
