Championing Excellence, Education and Diversity In The Sector

Mountview, Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, and LW Theatres share a commitment to removing barriers to careers in the arts. We believe a person’s circumstances should never prevent them from reaching their potential. This new partnership builds on Mountview’s long-standing relationship with Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation, who support scholarships in musical theatre and the Ptaszysnki Producer initiative at Mountview. With LW Theatres’ support, we can now widen access for the next generation of technical production talent even further.

“Mountview is incredibly excited to launch this new scholarship, supporting the next generation of technical production talent and creating vital access to production arts training. I’m especially delighted that this support comes from such important organisations in the industry, who recognise the quality of Mountview’s training and the longstanding track record of graduates who have continued their careers at LW Theatres.”
