The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) received funding towards Next Generation, a talent development programme for young people aged 13 to 18. The programme will recruit talented young people from the RSC’s nationwide partnerships with schools and regional theatres, known as the Associate Schools programme. Some of the best theatre-makers, actors and directors in the business will give advice, teaching, support and practical experience, under the guidance of the RSC, with workshops and residential courses in Stratford-upon-Avon. Next Generation will encourage new talent, who would not have had access to these opportunities, to enter a career in the theatre in either acting, directing or working backstage.
