Bursaries give a boost

THE future is ripe and full of opportunities for the 23 young recipients of the 2012 Empire Theatres Foundation Youth Bursaries.

The Empire Theatres Foundation Youth Program offers bursaries in specific development short courses at leading Australian performing arts institutions.

They are given to assist those who demonstrate current involvement and achievement in a performing arts discipline.

 Emily Hendon was the 250th recipient of the bursary, being awarded the Queensland Theatre Company Residency Week bursary. She will spend a week with the Queensland Theatre Company honing her acting and theatre skills.

She said the opportunity to study with the group was a great step to pursuing her future ambitions.

"I would really love to study abroad," she said. "Probably somewhere like London or New York."
