“I felt so privileged to be selected for two scholarships, so fortunate that someone had enough confidence in my abilities that they would not only accept me as a student but give me financial support.”

Elena Pisano, Musical Theatre Scholarship Recipient

Adopt-A-Student Program

There’s no better way to ensure the success of our program and its stars than by stepping into the role of a supporting player yourself. For many of our students, the combination of class work, rigorous rehearsal schedules, and performance requirements makes it impossible to hold part-time jobs and stay in school. Your participation in the Adopt-A-Student Program will help them to continue their education as they prepare for the future.

Read on to find out how you can “adopt a student.”

Annual Sponsorships

Through annual sponsorships, you can get to know our students personally and share their hopes and dreams as they develop from young artists into successful professionals.

Sponsorships are available at three levels:

$200 Balcony Level: Share the sponsorship with other donors

$500 Mezzanine Level: Share the sponsorship with one other donor

$1,000 Orchestra Level: Be the sole sponsor of a student
