Gibsa Bah, 17, from Birmingham, has won The Stage Scholarship to cover fees for the first year of Wac Arts’ three-year diploma in professional musical theatre (worth £9,000).
Gibsa said: “I am pleased to have been chosen for The Stage Scholarship. I am dedicated to my training, travelling from Birmingham to north London every week to work as hard as I can. I chose Wac Arts because it has an exciting syllabus: aerial skills, African song and dance, puppetry and more, as well as traditional performing arts and musical theatre training.
“I have loved my first term here and want to work hard to be the best performer I can be by the time I graduate. Thank you to The Stage and the team at Wac Arts that selected me.”
