Imagination has the power to change lives, but it needs the right environment to flourish.

Unmatched in the region, Florida Studio Theatre School offers opportunities for children to discover their creativity through year-round workshops and summer camps. They believe that all students should share these experiences. Yet when a family is struggling financially, artistic classes are the last thing on their priority list.

Knowing creative learning experiences benefit students in the long-run, our funding fills a need for scholarships to make theatre camp affordable and accessible to as many children as possible. The partnership provides an opportunity for the Theatre School to create a culture where everybody is invited, especially those from low-income homes.

Furthermore, the support allows FST to expand its VIP Performing Arts Camp, helping youth with physical, mental, and emotional challenges find their voice. Now every child will be able to expand their hearts and minds, make lifelong friendships, and join a nurturing theatre community.
