Theatre of Dare Scholarships


Helping the next generation of actors, technicians, writers, designers, and animators.

Each season, Theatre of Dare awards scholarships to deserving local seniors  - in Currituck, Dare, and Hyde counties - who plan to attend college and major in the performing arts as well as college students who have received awards in the past and are continuing their education. In Spring 2023, we awarded $2,500 to two students!

Participation in Theatre of Dare is not a prerequisite.

If you know of a high school senior in our area planning to major in the performing arts, encourage them to apply for the Don Bridge Memorial scholarship.

The 2024 application packet can be found here. Please fill out and return the entire application by March 10, 2024.

Funds for the Don Bridge Memorial Scholarship are raised through 50/50 raffles that are held during Theatre of Dare performances. However, we also accept donations that go directly into our scholarship fund.
