Norwich-based Amplify Theatre was awarded the grant by the UEA Student Enterprise funding programme.

The fund awards grants to current UEA students and recent graduates in order to help start new business ventures.

Izzy Cutler, who is a UEA drama graduate, applied for funding.

The company's debut production Breathing Corpses and Tommy, will now be performed at Norwich Theatre Royal's Stage Two venue on Marc 1 and 2.
