We are delighted to announce that KPMG LLP in Birmingham has become The REP's official 'Youth Theatre Sponsor'. As The REP's official Youth Theatre Sponsor, KPMG will support The REP's 15 Young REP groups and their performances. The partnership will also fund 15 vital bursaries for young people who would otherwise be unable to take part.
Karl Edge, Birmingham Office Senior Partner and Midlands Regional Chairman at KPMG commented:
“I was a member of The REP's Youth Theatre in the mid-late 80s and always had an affinity for the performing arts. As a working class lad, drama helped me to develop the confidence to perform at a high standard, which is a fundamental part of my career, so I'm delighted that some 30 years on, KPMG is able to support Birmingham Repertory Theatre.”
