Matt Letton
18 year old Matt Letton will undertake a training program with one of the world's most prestigious musical companies in London's West End.
Mr Anderson said Matthew is one of just 15 young artists from across regional NSW that have been awarded $10,000 scholarships under the NSW Young Regional Artist Scholarships program.
Matt is a talented local performer who has spent years studying dance with Tamworth City Dance Academy so this is a really exciting opportunity for him.
These scholarships really send a clear message to young artists that just because they grew up in a regional area does not mean that they can't develop their skills and pursue a career in the arts.
With this $10,000 scholarship Matt will be able to train with some of the best music theatre professionals in London.
Mr Letton said winning the scholarship is a dream come true and will allow him to pursue music theatre professionally.
This three week intensive course will put me in front of talent scouts and professional Directors as well as give me an opportunity to see behind the scenes of some of the world's biggest shows.
The aim is to get into to further training with a school or college in Australia when I return and this oversees training will be a massive help to achieve that.
