John Bell Scholarship

The opportunity of a lifetime for budding actors in regional Australia. Over 100 students are auditioned, with four students ultimately selected to spend a week training with Bell Shakespeare.

They undertake acting masterclasses and mentoring with Bell Shakespeare artists, observe rehearsals, see live theatre and perform their winning monologue for Artistic Director Peter Evans and other members of the Bell Shakespeare team.

This program is only made possible through generous support from our donors and the Cocoa-Cola Foundation. If you would like to help us give life changing opportunities to regional students, please consider donating to our Sharing Shakespeare giving program. A donation of $100 gives one student the opportunity to participate in an audition masterclass and a donation of $12,500 covers the cost of one scholarship.

This program is supported by the Coca Cola Foundation.
