Individual Support

The results of Mountview’s training bolster the industry.

  • We train the next generation of talented actors, directors, production artists and writers go straight to work in the industry each year. In 2016, 65 Mountview graduates performed on the West End stage.
  • Our acting students are the most diverse cohort of all accredited UK drama schools (40% are Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) and 85% of students come from state schools
  • Students collaborate with the finest theatre practitioners to create exciting new work. Recent successes have included Lockhart, a new musical by Jason Carr and Ashley Robinson, which is now under option to be performed at the Public Theatre in New York in 2018
  • Our outreach projects engage over 300 young people a week in a range of short courses, evening and weekend classes.

The UK is second to none when it comes to live theatre and the creative industries. To maintain this position we must invest in the next generation of actors, musical theatre performers, directors and writers. You can do just that today by supporting Mountview.

Student Hardship Fund

“It is vital that we invest in the next generation of actors, musical theatre performers, directors and writers. Mountview’s bursary scheme does just that.”
~ Dame Judi Dench, President of Mountview

Mountview is committed to recruiting students regardless of their background or income. Alongside our annual auditions we partner with arts organisations across the UK, forming a national scouting network to offer free auditions to talented candidates who cannot otherwise afford to apply. Once at Mountview, half our undergraduate students receive a bursary and our Student Hardship Fund ensure that there is support available for every student who needs it.

How You Can Help

The cost of fees, equipment and materials can be prohibitive for students. Donations of any size can help students purchase essential equipment:

  • £20 could buy a pair of jazz shoes for a Musical Theatre student
  • £100 could contribute towards an Acting student’s library of scripts and text books
  • £500 could provide a graduating student with professional resources including headshots
