APPLY NOW for Musical Theatre Scholarship for Winter 2019

Applications open now for the Winter 2019 Laureen Cardona Musical Theatre Scholarship!

Named in honor of the mother of one of our instructors,  Musical Theater teacher Steven Cardona, the scholarship is for any student 5 (and in Kindergarten) to 12 years old with an interest in theatrical arts, who lives in a single-parent/single-guardian household.

Growing up in Florida, Steven was drawn to the performing arts as a child, and although his mom had a lot on her plate as a single parent, she always made sure that Steven could go to his theater classes. We’re hoping that with the addition of this brand new scholarship, Art House Astoria can help make that dream a little easier for a local family.

The scholarship will cover the tuition for the Winter 2019 Musical Theater 101 Class, an introductory class that teaches kids the basics of theater like the parts of a theater, stage directions, and the roles of the people who work in the theater. Additionally the youngsters in this class play theater games and learn songs, scenes, and choreography.

Musical Theater classes are a great way to build confidence in a youngster. Art House often hears from parents that their children are showing more ease getting up in front of their classes. And it’s a great way to meet new friends in the neighborhood!
