The Pine City Heritage Players Community Theater will expand its scholarship opportunities for students in the east central Minnesota area. Two different types of scholarships will be available: Enrichment opportunities for grades 5-12 and Performing Arts Educational opportunity for college-bound students. Both scholarships will provide a unique opportunity for community members to explore additional ways to expand their skills in the performing arts or pursue a degree in theater.
Both of these scholarships are made possible through the generosity of the Lindstrom family and fundraising during the “Songs of the Stage” events hosted throughout the year.
In December 2017, the Heritage Players and the Pine City Community lost a treasured member. Harv Lindstrom lived his life with a servant’s heart and the Heritage Players were honored to have him serve on their Board of Directors. His family chose to honor his memory by donating memorial gifts to the Heritage Players, who decided to use those gifts to create the “Harv Lindstrom Memorial Scholarship”.
The enrichment scholarship is available for any student grades 5-12 interested in taking part in a performing arts enrichment program. A few examples might include: an improv workshop, week long camps for theater, dance or vocal performing. This scholarship will be available year round for requests. Students should submit scholarship requests with an eight week window prior to the start of the event for adequate processing time.
The second opportunity is a Performing Arts Educational scholarship, offered for students that will be pursuing a major or minor in the performing arts. The complete set of guidelines and application forms can be found on the Heritage Players website. The deadline to apply for the 2019 scholarship will be August 1st.
