Academy scholarship fundraising event puts a twist on “cabaret”
The Springer Opera House hosts hundreds of children every summer, fall, winter, and spring break via their Springer Theatre Academy young actor training program. Their motto, “Life Skills Through Stage Skills”, is taught enthusiastically to children from various regions – even nationally and internationally.
The Wise Investment program is a scholarship fund that began in honor of Ron Anderson, the founder of the Springer Theatre Academy. Donations to this fund will provide full tuition to under privileged children so they may experience the Academy.
The teachers and staff of the Springer Theatre Academy are holding an event, called “TeacherET”, to raise money for the Wise Investment program. The event will be held July 20th, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. in the Emily Woodruff Hall at the Springer Opera House. Admission is free, but donations are suggested for scholarships.
The event will include the teachers of the Academy performing musical numbers and skits, displaying their abilities and knowledge in the theatre arts. TeacherET will give the community a glimpse into the regional and national talent that teach their children at the Springer Theatre Academy, while creating opportunities for disadvantaged children to be exposed to one of life most fundamental aspects – the arts.
All ages are encouraged to attend a dazzling evening of professional entertainment. Concessions will be offered. All proceeds will benefit the Springer Theatre Academy’s Wise Investment Program.
