An invited cast of professionals, ex-professionals and accomplished amateurs promise a jam-packed night of Musical Theatre to raise funds to send Thomas Major to Arts Ed, London in September.
Thomas Major is a talented 19-year-old from Gorleston-On-Sea. After a difficult year of online auditions and re-calls, he has been lucky enough to be offered a place at the acclaimed drama school, Arts Ed in London. With an acceptance rate of 22% it is a notoriously difficult drama school to get into; with only 50 places available out of thousands of applications submitted. Your support would be greatly appreciated to help make his dreams come true to access training that is vital to his future career within the performing arts industry.
Luckily, Thomas is eligible for student finance and is continuing to work hard and save so tuition fees are almost covered. Any additional money that we can raise through this concert and his Go Fund Me Page (https://gofund.me/5ea5c95d) will help with covering the remaining fees and additional costs. This financial barrier is a huge hurdle due to the cost of living and training in London. Raising this money would alleviate some of the financial worries; nobody wants money to be a barrier to education. Nobody wants the acting industry to be a private space for those who can afford it. Unfortunately, at this moment in time, those things are true. But we won't let that stop Thomas from trying to fulfil his dreams.
West End Calling features excerpts from a host of classic shows - alongside some of the newest Musical Theatre on the West End and Broadway - this show has something for everyone, and raising money for a great cause.
