Supporting the pursuit of theatre arts
Educational development in the live theatre arts is one of the main components of TAG’s mission. In keeping with this mission, TAG has created a scholarship fund to assist area high school seniors in pursuing higher education. Every spring, TAG solicits scholarship applications from graduating seniors in the metropolitan area planning to pursue at least a minor in one of the theatre arts at a college, university, or approved school of drama.
The TAG scholarship program is funded almost exclusively through private contributions and donations at TAG Night Out preview performances throughout the year. Since the program’s inception more than a decade ago, TAG has awarded approximately $25,000 in scholarships to deserving area students. Many of the scholarship recipients are working in the theatre arts today, and many lend their talents to Omaha’s vibrant theatre scene.
Information on auditions for the 2013 scholarships has been posted here and has also been made available to all metro high school guidance offices. See below for the application and requirements.
