An infinite budget

Andrew Lloyd Webber has announced that he will donate £3.5 million to Arts Educational Schools (ArtsEd).
The money will be used for refurbishment, new facilities and on developing the main theatre, costume department and disability access…

If you were given an infinite budget – unlikely, but we can imagine – what would you spend it on?

A brand new black box studio?
Lessons from world-renowned practitioners?
A cupboard full of new costumes?

Do you think there could be a danger of losing the educational essence of drama if there are too many bells and whistles?

Let us know what you think…..
