Student Spotlight Fundraiser

During COVID, many of our students’ families have experienced financial hardship. We’ve changed our pricing model to offer suggested pricing, allowing families to pay what they can. This way our students can participate without the barrier of monetary restrictions. However, this creates some financial challenges for us as a business as well. We’d love your help in providing scholarships to our deserving students . Please give what you can so that we can continue to make this opportunity available to students of all abilities, and help us to continue providing Theatre for ALL!

Give a Gift of Theatre


Sponsor a Student

Starting at $20, you can sponsor a student’s theatre experience for a week. With a $80 gift you can support a month’s worth of learning, and for $240 you can support an entire semester. We can earmark the gift to a specific student of you choosing, or provide it to a student whose family is having a financial hardship. We never turn students away from experiencing theatre for all!

Sponsor a School or Organization
