Other ways to support BSC
BSC’s special events are a key part of our fundraising efforts.
- Education Benefit – September 12, 2014 – The benefit includes tickets to Suzanne Vega in concert and a post-show reception with Ms. Vega. All proceeds go to our education program which then offers scholarships to KidsAct!, Musical Theatre Apprentice Program and our Playwright Mentoring Project which helps youth at risk to experience life through theater. The Benefit is Sponsored by Greylock Federal Credit Union.
- BSC/NYC Benefit – November 5, 2014 – All proceeds go to our New Works Initiative. BSC believes that new work is the heart and soul of theatre. A New Works Commission will allow a playwright or a composer/lyricist team to be nurtured and supported.
Education Scholarship Fund
BSC provides scholarships to students-in-need to attend BSC’s summer KidsAct! program. $500 sends a child to camp for three weeks, and gives him/her an opportunity to learn collaborative skills as well as acting, movement, dance, stage combat and voice.
