THE 2022 SCHOLARSHIP SUBMISSION WINDOW IS NOW OPEN

The purpose of the Cincinnati Music Theatre Scholarship Program is to encourage and promote the study of theater arts at the collegiate level, particularly musical theater, in both performance and production.  Importantly, the CMT Scholarship Program is intended to give back to the Greater Cincinnati area through the support of academic study in recognition of the years of dedicated public interest and support of CMT productions.

CMT, through its scholarship program, will recognize outstanding Cincinnati-area high school seniors who have excelled in various aspects of theater production and/or performance during their high school career and will pursue a college degree in theater arts or theater-related music performance, production or education.

Any high school senior with at least a 3.0 GPA (4.0 scale) in the Greater Cincinnati area intending to enter college in the following year to study theatre/musical arts is eligible to apply.

Applications must be received by either postal mail or email by April 22, 2022 with no exceptions.

Based on the Oscar-winning film of the same name and powered by a disco beat, Priscilla… the musical is the hilarious adventure of three friends – two drag queens and a transsexual woman – who hop aboard a battered old bus named Priscilla bound for Alice Springs in the middle of Australia to put on the show of a lifetime. With a dazzling array of outrageous costumes and a hit parade of dance floor favorites, their epic journey is a heart-warming story of self-discovery, sassiness and acceptance.

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history’s timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair and what it means to live in America.

A seamless pairing of March of the Falsettos and Falsettoland, two acclaimed Off-Broadway musicals written nearly a decade apart, revolves around the life of a charming, intelligent, neurotic gay man name Marvin, his wife, his lover, his about-to-be-Bar-Mitzvahed son, their psychiatrist, and the lesbians next door. It’s a hilarious and achingly poignant look at the infinite possibilities that make up a modern family… and a beautiful reminder that in this game we call life, love can tell a million stories.
