Indian Valley Theatre of Sandwich CONGRATULATES all the graduates in the Class of 2021! IVT is very pleased to offer the annual Mimi Bryan Memorial IVT Scholarship in the amount of $250 to an area student(s) again this year. Due to the present challenging situations for High School Seniors, the Application deadline has been extended until July 1, 2021. The scholarship will be awarded in late summer.
Mimi Bryan was one of Indian Valley Theatre’s passionate founding members, dreaming big about live community theatre. As a long time educator, Mimi was active on stage, as well as, behind the scenes. Most importantly, she was instrumental in giving many budding actors a shot on stage and bringing Community Theater to life for hundreds of people in the Fox Valley area to enjoy. In the wonderful spirit of her significant contributions to the Fox Valley Theatre World, IVT is pleased to be able to offer this scholarship annually. Read more about Mimi Bryan on IVT’s website at:
A scholarship application is available through the applicant’s local High School Guidance Counselor or by contacting Sharon Pagoria @ firstname.lastname@example.org. It will also be available on IVT’s new website at http//indianvalleytheatre.com, where there is more information about Mimi Bryan.
The application must include a short written personal response to several questions. Special consideration will be given to applicants who have participated in the fine arts area, especially IVT productions, and may be interested in receiving further education in that field. However, a fine or performance arts major or minor is NOT required to qualify for the scholarship. Indian Valley Theatre is proud of this prestigious scholarship program honoring one of Fox Valley’s greatest contributors to community theatre and the performing arts.
A Scholarship Review Committee of the Indian Valley Theatre Board of Directors will consider all complete applications submitted. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating, college bound senior from high schools in Sandwich and the surrounding communities.
