Citadel Theatre Summer Scholars Program

The humanities and cultural arts are often the first thing lost when schools in financially constrained budget conditions start having to make tough decisions. In areas north of Citadel, places like Zion, North Chicago, and Waukegan, many students have barely experienced any performing arts. When Citadel invited groups from high schools in these areas in to see a play on our stage we saw, by show of hands, that a huge percentage of students had never been to live theatrical production before—let alone had a chance to act in one.

Citadel Theatre's conservatory-style actors training program produces two summer camps each year. Designed for students seeking creative arts learning opportunities, these camps teach collaboration and confidence and allow students to use their creative vision as they build skills as actors, dancers, and singers. Citadel's summer camps culminate in public performances.

The goal of the Citadel Theatre Summer Scholars Program is to match children from underserved areas with the benefits of our acting summer camps. Your donations can help us change the lives of low-income children through the power of the performing arts! Please donate what you can--we greatly appreciate your support. And don't forget, your contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thank you!!
