Dundee Rep's Graduate Scheme is supported by The Robertson Trust which helps support the cost of two young actors as they journey from school to stage. Each year, these actors train with our own Ensemble members, benefiting from the training and support of amazing actors, directors and producers and trying on different roles from Shakespeare drama to children’s plays and musicals.
