Cape Fear Regional Theatre Announces Receipt of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc. Grant to Provide Children Scholarships for Drama Day classes Spring Break Boot Camp

The deadline for applicant submissions has now passed. 

Cape Fear Regional Theatre (CFRT) is pleased to announce the receipt of the Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc.’s grant. This grant is funded by the Helen Jones Melvin Education Endowment of Cumberland Community Foundation, Inc.

With this grant, CFRT will offer 14 students the opportunity to attend day camps, held on Federal Holidays when schools are closed, and a week-long Spring Break Boot Camp held in April.“Our Drama Day camps and Spring Break Boot Camp provide parents a safe place to bring their kids while they {parents} work.  Children engage in theatre at a time when arts funding in the schools is on the decline.  It’s a win-win.   We are so grateful to the Cumberland Community Foundation for their support!” stated Mary Catherine Burke, Artistic Director of Cape Fear Regional Theatre.

Day Camps: January 21, February 18, & May 27

 

The Spring Break Boot Camp, April 22-26.

It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie’s friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best pal anymore and, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” and first grade has never been more exciting.

In addition to classes, recipients of the scholarship will also receive tickets to Annie, beginning January 31, 2019 at CFRT. These tickets are for the youth and an adult to attend – offering the opportunity to experience high quality

CLASSIC THEATRE SERIES

CFRT’s Classic Theatre Series offers every 11th graders in Cumberland County an opportunity to see a show at the theatre free of charge!  Whether students see a production by William Shakespeare or a piece of classic American Literature, they leave the theatre with new perspectives and understandings about what they have just read in class and seen performed live onstage.

In 2018-2019 we offered Peter and the Starcatcher in the fall and will offer Trumbo in the spring.

 “They may never witness the beauty of live theatre without this opportunity, and it shows how powerful literature can be when the words come to life on stage. They can ‘see’ the conflicts and the fact that these are the same issues people are facing today.”
