The Brian Boak Outstanding Performer Bursary is offered biennially and is worth up to $20,000. This bursary has been made possible through the generosity of the late Brian Boak, a staunch supporter of the performing arts on the Darling Downs.
The Brian Boak Bursary is designed to provide support to a person wishing to pursue a program of study or professional development at a recognised university, specialist post-secondary institution or other centre of excellence in the areas of acting, dancing, singing or instrumental performance.
Applications are invited from artists who are Australian citizens, aged 18-35. Where several suitably qualified persons are identified, preference may be given to applicants residing in or originating from the Darling Downs region. The Trustees reserve the right not to award a bursary in a particular year if, in their opinion, there is no suitably qualified applicant.
The current Brian Boak Bursary application period is now open and will close 31st January 2020.
Please note all tickets purchased will be emailed in PDF format to the ticket purchaser approximately 48 hours prior to the performance.
All patrons must provide their name, address, phone number and email before the performance to email@example.com.
