Scholarships to the Playmakers program are given based on talent, work ethic and financial need. It is our belief that the best students are passionate students. In answering the question about why you (your child) would like to participate in Playmakers please tell us your feelings about performing. For instance, why do you love it? How did you discover it? How to you use what you learn in the rest of your life? Completed essays should be emailed to.
Be aware, scholarship awards vary from $50-$150 per-student. We do not offer ‘full ride’ awards. We feel that when a student’s and their family contribute toward the costs of their participation they take greater responsibility for their time in the program.
Also, students receiving scholarships may be asked to write personal thank you letter to our anonymous sponsors.
Payment for the remaining balance after receiving a scholarship is expected before opening night of the performance. We can accept multiple payments can be made throughout the rehearsal period.
Scholarship essays should be received no later than one month before the first performance.
*Multi-sibling discount: When multiple students from one family are participating in a playmakers production discounts start at $25 off for each additional student:
first student $200, second student: $175, third student: $150. And so on. Further assistance may be available upon inquiry.
