"They say times are hard for dreamers / But they won't be hard for me / I've saved up everything I know"
-- Amelie the Musical
My name is Lydia Breckon. My burning ambition for as long as I can remember is to work in musical theatre. I have so far in my career written two small musicals (which you can watch for free on my youtube channel), as well as been involved with countless other theatrical and musical projects, but have now reached the point where I'm ready to do more. My dreams are getting bigger.
I have been given that absolutely wonderful opportunity to study at New York University on their Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program as a Composer. This is a two-year Masters programme at the Tisch School of Arts, starting this Autumn.
NYU estimates the costs of one-year living and studying in New York at $87, 461. I have been awarded a $20k scholarship but need help in raising money to cover the rest!
