ACT of Connecticut is thrilled to announce the creation of a new scholarship initiative entitled First ACT!
First ACT! was created to support, encourage and nurture students of all socio-economic backgrounds, races, ethnicities and genders so that they may receive the highest level of training and theatrical education possible. ACT of CT strongly believes that theater fosters empathy and inspires creative thinking while providing a safe space in which all can listen and learn from one another.
First ACT! not only supports enrollment in all of ACT of CT’s educational programming (including classes, conservatory, camps, private lessons and other offerings) but also production and artistic apprenticeship opportunities. Apprentices are given the opportunity to work directly with, and learn from the professionals creating productions at ACT of CT. This apprenticeship program strives to train the next generation of theatrical artists and technicians.
ACT of CT is committed to achieving a diverse future workforce and to maintaining an inclusive and discrimination-free environment where all can learn and succeed.
To learn more about these opportunities and to discuss potential ways to partner with ACT of CT’s First ACT! Program, please contact FirstAct@actofct.org.
