Budding young actors invited to apply for Brian Weaver Fellowship

Aspiring actors from Derbyshire are being given the opportunity to gain professional experience.

Applications for the Brian Weaver Fellowship are being sought, with the winner being offered the chance to appear in two productions at Derby Theatre.

The fellowship was launched last year after a donation from Buxton resident Doreen Weaver in memory of her late husband Brian.

To apply for the fellowship, you must be between 18 and 29. Send your CV and 500-word covering letter to: a.mcintyre@derbyac.uk by December 15. The fellowship will be awarded after audition and interview in January.
