The Stage/CPA Studios Scholarship winner

Ryan Condy Ryan Condy

Ryan Condy, 22, from West Lothian, Scotland, has won The Stage/CPA Studios Scholarship, and as a result will receive £26,000 funding towards attending the three-year full-time musical theatre diploma course. CPA is part of Colin’s Performing Arts Group.

Ryan said: “When I auditioned for CPA I felt like I was somewhere that I belong. I had to go there. Unfortunately, due to my finances, I was unable to do the course.

“I was called into the Studios one day and the principal told me that I had won The Stage Scholarship and I couldn’t believe it. Winning the scholarship is a dream come true for me and without the support from CPA and The Stage I most definitely wouldn’t have been able to follow my dream.”
