2024 Producer’s Scholarships

Cumberland Gang Show is a fantastic opportunity for fun, for development and for learning. Thousands of young people have had the opportunity over the last 50 years to be involved and we are proud of the way Cumberland Gang Show has shaped so many lives.

We don’t want anyone to miss out on this experience due to financial issues. As a result, thanks to sponsorship we have been able to continue offering our Producer's Scholarship program into 2024. These scholarships have been created to help extend the Cumberland Gang Show opportunity to young people who may not otherwise be able to experience it. The program is open to young people aged 8 to 26 and pays the cast fees for those who are selected.

A limited number of scholarships are available for cast, and will be assessed on need. Current cast members for whom cast fees are likely to create significant financial burden are eligible to apply.

To apply, please prepare a 50 word statement outlining why you/your child would benefit from Cumberland Gang Show and how the financial aspect of the scholarship would impact your situation. Applications must be made by the first rehearsal (Saturday 9th March 2024) to the Producer/Director and he will assess them personally.

Applicants and the details of their circumstances will be treated confidentially. Applicants will be advised by the end of March if they are successful or not. Meanwhile applicants for the Producer's Scholarships should not pay cast fees until they hear back from us.
