Financial Assistance

Through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations, First Stage Theater Academy continues to expand its Community Partnership Program to reach even more young people. 

For additional financial assistance, portions of tuition may also be covered by our Community Partnership program.  Families do not need to qualify for free or reduced lunch to be eligible for assistance.  

In order to continue being able to fulfill all financial assistance requests received, all families are required to contribute towards the Academy tuition at an amount mutually determined between the family and First Stage.
