The ‘Colin Putz’ Scholarship

The Colin Putz scholarship has been set up by the Principal of KA Arts to honour his mentor Colin Putz.

Colin was the founder of Colin’s Performing Arts back in 1984 and has been responsible for training thousands of students during his time as Principal of Colin’s Performing Arts and then CPA Studios.

Had it not been for Colin and his keen eye for talent, our Principal, Kevin Archbold, would not have been offered a place at Colin’s Performing Arts College, on the 3 Year Musical Theatre course with a scholarship. Thus enabling Kevin to go on to have a successful career in the industry and becoming Colin’s first college graduate to gain a West-End credit.
