Giving Tuesday is a national day of contributing to the work of your favorite nonprofits’ labors! On November 27, 2018, please consider a gift to our 2018-19 scholarship fund.

According to the 2018 Ohio Arts Education Data Project, only 11 out of 131 schools in Lucas County offer theatre education programs–and absolutely none in TPS elementary schools. By contrast, CTW teaches theatre education to more than 475 students every year; 48% of those students are Toledo residents.

Theatre education is more than putting on a play. It’s practicing skills like public speaking, leadership, service, critical thinking, literacy, empathy. And it’s more than skills. It’s the joy of a theatre family.

Tuition for theatre education lessons and productions is $150; less than half of what it costs to put on programs. But even then, this is not accessible to some families and we know every child who wants theatre, deserves this experience.

CTW has set aside $4,200 in scholarships for the 2018-19 season. We’ve already awarded $900 of it to amazing, passionate young people who are in love with their theatre experience.

On November 27, 2018, please consider contributing to our efforts. We fundraise all year for things like paying staff, turning on the lights, renting theatres, but this? We know every former theatre kid can pass on their amazing experience to the next generation by contributing to this scholarship fund.

Thank you.
