Youth Participation Scholarships


Trike Theatre has a strong commitment to making all of our Theatre Academy programs and Youth Theatre Production opportunities available to every interested child. Thanks to generous donations from Donors and Members of Trike Theatre, we are able to provide partial scholarships.

Gwen Edwards Memorial Scholarships are awarded in 20%, 50%, or 80% tuition waivers and are based solely on need. Due to limited resources we ask that applicants provide us with a complete financial picture for full consideration.

Application Deadlines

Summer Academy Camps

Families wanting to register their young actors for an Academy Camp need to submit their applications in advance of registering, but this does not guarantee a spot in the desired program. We advise applicants to submit their applications as early as possible to ensure that a space is still available.

Youth Theatre Productions

Families who have a young actor participating in a Youth Theatre Production, need to submit their applications after the young actor has been cast in a production.
