Financial Assistance

Through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations, First Stage Theater Academy continues to expand its Community Partnership Program to reach even more young people. 

Financial assistance is available to those families in need.  Families do not need to qualify for free or reduced lunch to be eligible for assistance.  Transportation for students in need may also be available. 

In order to continue being able to fulfill all financial assistance requests received, all families are required to contribute towards the Academy tuition at an amount mutually determined between the family and First Stage

Applying for Financial Aid

If you apply for financial assistance, please do not register for classes online. Register for the Theater Academy either by mail or fax only and include an application for financial aid.
