Are you passionate about theatre? Do you want professional training to take your skills to the next level? Do you want the loving and supportive environment that will prepare you for the professional world, but you're too nervous about not being able to afford it?
Here at CGST, we believe in providing opportunities for artists of all backgrounds and incomes to come and receive the training and supportive environment they need to succeed as actors, students and future professionals. As part of some new initiatives our organization has begun, we've been working harder to make those opportunities realistic for everyone.
Take a look below at some of our programs to help your student afford to attend the Columbia Gorge School of Theatre. Keep in mind these programs are primarily for those students who cannot afford CGST otherwise. So start working now and help us help you make CGST 2015 a reality in your future!
Friends for Free Tuition!
This year, CGST is launching a competition amongst all CGST potential campers in a chance to see how many friends you can bring to camp for some truly awesome prizes!
If you bring 1 friend with you to camp, you will be given a special limited edition CGST Donor T-Shirt as well as a shout out on the Sponsor thank you page and a place in our Bronze Supporter Circle!
If you bring 2-4 friends with you to camp, you will be given a special limited edition CGST Donor T-Shirt, a shout out on the Sponsor thank you page, a place in our Bronze Supporter Circle, and a Starbucks Special order brought to you during class at camp for each friend you bring!
If you bring 5+ friends with you to camp, you will be given a special limited edition CGST Donor T-Shirt, a shout out on the Sponsor thank you page, a place in our Bronze Supporter Circle, a week of Starbucks Special orders brought to you during class at camp, plus a special mystery prize presented to you at camp!
For our Grand Prize, at the end of the school year, before camp begins, in addition to all other prizes, whichever camper has the most friends enrolled at camp for the summer will have their ENTIRE TUITION PAID FOR courtesy of CGST itself.
Keep in mind, in order for a friend to count towards your score, they must list you as a reference in their camper application.
Good luck to all students and we hope to see you all at camp!
Sponsor a Camper Program
Are you a former camper or parent? Do you want to help aspiring actors in your neighborhood or city afford to come to CGST and train, perform and love? Not sure how to contribute besides a donation?
Well here's your answer!
In CGST's new "Sponsor a Camper" program, we've gathered up some CGST-hopefuls looking for the chance to do what they love in the environment they need. Whether you're a parent, a friend, or a parent's friend, you can help students you know (or don't know!) afford the training they deserve.
Below are the videos of these hopefuls pleading for their chance to attend CGST. If one camper strikes you, or maybe all of them do! You can contribute directly to their fund for camp by clicking the 'Send <name> to camp!' button below the video.
Even by helping just one of these young artists, you can contribute to the global struggle for artistic opportunities and professional youth education and training. Whether it's a dollar, or $200, these kids will be eternally grateful and know who to thank when they show up on Broadway or win their oscar.
Now go find your young artist!
