OpenSpot Theatre - Student Spotlight

OpenSpot Theatre offers programming designed for EVERYONE, including students with developmental and physical disabilities.  We teach singing, dancing and acting, as well as empowerment, teamwork, belonging, and fun.

During Covid-19, many of our students’ families have experienced financial hardship. Because of this, we’ve changed our pricing model to offer suggested pricing, allowing students to participate without the barrier of monetary restrictions. 

It is important to us that our classes continue to be accessible to all and it's our 2021 goal to sponsor and support 40 students and their families. We’d love your help in providing scholarships to our deserving students in financial need. Here’s how far your help can go:

     •$20 - one student for 1-hour
     •$120 - one student’s 6-week session
     •$160 - one student’s 8-week session
     •$240 - siblings! Two student’s 6-week sessions

Supporting 40 students is the minimum we need. If we surpassed our $5,000 goal we could supplement the students with their precious shirts, props, and costumes. If we raised another $2,500 we could afford to professionally film a year’s worth of performances.

Thank you for being part of our community, our family. Thank you for your actions of letting our students know they are important, talented, and deserving of the spotlight. Please give what you can so that we can continue to make these opportunities available to students of all abilities, and help us to continue providing theatre for all!
