Send Nolan to PACE University in NYC!

He auditioned and they said yes!
Now we need your help.  Even with generous talent awards and all the family support he can get ( we even dug through the couch cushions) Nolan is still short $9755 for his dream, to attend rigorous actor training in a top notch consersatory. 

              Now he needs your help to bridge the gap

Please help this dedicated and talented kid make his dreams come true.

Curly ~Nolan stepped into this role right before opening night when the original actor and understudy suddenly became unavailable.  He had one week  to learn all the lines and songs.  It was amazing!   A great example of how hard Nolan is willing to work in his pursuit of excellence. 

Star Struck~ Nolan's first performance was when he was 2 years old.  His Father and Grandfather were performing a song together in a talent show.  Nolan wanted more than anything to join them.  We gave him a harmonica and he went for it.  It was a huge success.  Nolan enjoyed the applause so much, he stayed and performed an encore of his ABC's, complete with missing letters.  

If I were a rich man (I'd go to college)~ Nolan's most recent perfromance was as Tevye in the hit musical "Fiddler on the Roof".  The show sold out it's 600 seats many times and was the best selling show in CHS history.  His mom made it a point to catch  the end of each performance just to see if each and every one of them would end with a standing ovation. 

With your help, Nolan can attend one of these fine schools:
PACE Performing Arts in NYC (accepted!)
Chicago College Performing Arts at Roosevelt (accepted!)
Carnegie Mellon University (Priority Waitlisted)

(Which one will he choose?  Donors will be the first to know...)

 Nolan is dedicated to getting himself to college and has:

*Applied for any and all  scholarships he could find
*Created a bare-bones budget that includes only tuition, room, and board
*Agreed to the maximum student loan amount he qualifies for
*Decided to sell his car
*Agreed to the maximum work-study         

          **THANK YOU for your consideration and help!**

The fine print:
Don't forget to include your email address if you'd like to recieve updates on his progress, and your physical address for a thank you note.  We'll need to know your picture preference as well if you're receiving an autographed photo.
If Nolan is able to raise funds beyond the goal amount they will be used to defray additional costs of attending college.  He created a barebones budget so if his budget belt loosens, he will have money for books, expenses, etc.  

"When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap."
