Lotto aid for a pantomime.
The South Tyneside Academy of Musical Performance (Stamp) is one of 20 in the region set to benefit from the Lottery Awards for All programme, that will see them take a share of pounds 386,562.
The small-grants scheme is administered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of Lottery good cause funders, Arts Council England, Big Lottery Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund and Sport England.
Stamp will receive pounds 8,200 to produce a pantomime by a group of youngsters aged between eight and 21. The recently-formed academy provides professional coaching in the performing arts at a reduced cost.
Director Colin Bourdiec said: "We give training in all areas of the performing arts, including singing, dancing and drama, as well as the behind-the-scenes production skills necessary for putting on a performance with the aim of creating a show for the community.
"The youngsters will undertake all the work and performing."
