Theatre courses can have a positive impact on a student’s life. Students who study theatre see an improvement in reading comprehension, are less likely to drop out of school, and they will form the life skills they need to succeed as adults. That’s why we believe theatre education opportunities should be available to all students in our area. For families who may need a little bit of help, financial assistance is available in the form of full or partial scholarships and volunteer hours. Scholarships and Volunteer Hours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

How to Apply

Applications can be found here or picked up at QCT during Box Office hours. Please complete our scholarship application and return to QCT via email to brendan.shea@1qct.org, or printed and dropped off or mailed to:
