To: Parents, Teachers, Actors, Artists & Others: The Opera House Stage Co. will accept applications for the Colin Rolfe Scholarship for the Arts , a program to assist people of all ages to study the art form of their choice. Amounts ranging from $100 to $500 will be available to both adults or children to study singing, dance, acting, music, writing, painting or sculpture.
While anyone may apply, extra consideration will be given to young people, those who have participated in the arts (especially at the Monticello Opera House), those with modest means and residents of Jefferson County. The Stage Co. established the scholarship after our dear friend and fellow actor Colin Rolfe passed away in 2011. Colin started acting when he was 62, and he took piano lessons at 68. That’s why the scholarship is open to all ages.
Applications for this year’s scholarship will be accepted through March, 2016. To obtain an application, or to ask questions, email Jan Williams at email@example.com, call Jan at 850 728-1861 or Jack Williams at 850 933-9726. Please pass this along to others who might be interested.
