Un-Common Theatre Offers Two Scholarships for High School Seniors

The Un-Common Theatre Company is currently accepting applications for two $500 college scholarships.

The first $500 scholarship will be awarded to a Mansfield High School 2015 graduate. This scholarship is offered each year in appreciation for the Town of Mansfield’s support of The Un-Common Theatre Co in allowing use of their school facilities.

The second $500 scholarship will be awarded to an Un-Common Theatre Company Alumni who will be graduating from high school in 2015. In order to qualify, the alumni must have participated in any aspect of an Un-Common Theatre Company production including acting, directing or technical assistance.

The applicants for the 2015 scholarships must meet the following requirements: involvement in music or theatre 3 out of 4 years during their high school years, an interest in pursuing music or theatre in the future, and continuation of education at an accredited 2 or 4 year institution. The added requirement of past participation with Un-Common Theatre Company applies to the Alumni Scholarship.
