“I passionately believe that the stage needs to reflect the diversity of the UK population or it risks becoming side-lined.  The Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation funds a range of projects that help to make a difference – from drama school scholarships to theatre outreach programmes.  It will take action from everyone to effect significant change.  We are asking sector bodies, drama schools, theatre producers, actors, creative teams and philanthropists to take responsibility and specific action.  I urge you all to read the recommendations and get involved”.
