Daniel has been accepted and needs to raise £875 to fund his Assistant Director role on NYMT's 'Honk!'

by Daniel Scott in Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

Hello, lovely people!

My name is Daniel Scott and I'm an aspiring theatre director, currently studying BA Drama and Theatre Arts at the University of Birmingham! In March 2017 I was accepted onto National Youth Music Theatre's Creative Mentorship Scheme, to Assistant Direct NYMT's production of Honk! which is touring in May-July. Many of those who have been accepted onto the Creative Mentorship Scheme in the past have gone onto successful careers as professional theatre directors.

I will be working alongside a professional creative team throughout rehearsals in April and this will be a hugely educational experience for me. However, in order to be able to attend these residential rehearsals, I need to raise £875 to pay for accommodation/course fees

Any donations you could spare at all would be incredibly generous of you, even if it is as little as £1! 

Thank you so much for visiting my page and considering donating! 

Daniel! Xx
