FERNDALE REP OFFERS SCHOLARSHIP AWARD
The Ferndale Repertory Theatre invites applications for its annual $500.00 scholarship award. The award is given each year to a Humboldt County graduating senior interested in pursuing a career in the performing arts including music, drama, dance, physical theater, theatrical design and technical theater. The very first scholarship award winner was local songwriter Sara Bareilles.
The Rep is committed to providing theatrical opportunities to the youth in our county. Our dedication to this area of community service has grown to include a number of Rep-sponsored programs and activities for children and young adults. FRT offers children and teen summer workshops, special school matinees and theatre tours, and the opportunity for students to participate in theatre productions as technical support, performers and musicians.
All applicants must be recommended by their Drama or English teacher, have a 3.5 or higher grade point average and have expressed a continuing desire to pursue a career in the arts through their participation in high school dramatics, community theatre involvement, or similar activities. Applicants must submit an essay expressing their reasons for applying for the scholarship and schedule an interview with FRT representatives. Application deadline is April 1, 2017.
