This is a $500 scholarship named for Stoneham Theatre’s former Associate Artistic Director, who grew the young company from its inception into the program it is today. Caitlin believes that good theatre makes good people. As such, this scholarship has been established to honor a young company student who embodies these ideals, as encapsulated in our mission. This is for any young company student in their final year of High School; you do not need to plan to study theatre in college in order to be eligible. There will be one award winner, who will be notified on March 10, 2017. The winner will be a guest in attendance at The Centennial Cabaret on Saturday, March 18, 2017. The student and up to 3 additional members of their family will be invited to attend the event as Stoneham Theatre’s guests.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO APPLY:
