Theatre of Dare Announces Two Local Scholarship Winners
Addie Moore, Mary Elysse Santa Awarded $1,000 Each
(Manteo, NC) – Theatre of Dare, the home of community theatre for North Carolina’s Outer Banks, today announced it has awarded two $1,000 scholarships to local high school seniors planning to pursue degrees in the performing arts.
The two scholarship winners are Addie Moore of Manteo, who performed in TOD’s 2014 production of Psycho Beach Party and will be attending the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Charlotte this fall, and Mary Elysse Santa of Moyock, a senior at Currituck High School who will be attending Western Carolina University.
Money for the scholarships was raised at raffle drawings during Theatre of Dare performances, “In the past, we had given out one $500 scholarship each year, but over the past two seasons our audiences have been extremely generous,” said TOD President Don
Bridge. “This is the second year in a row we’ve been able to give out two $1,000 scholarships, and we hope this new tradition continues.”
Earlier this month, Theatre of Dare wrapped up a successful 24th season with the relationship comedy Manly Men. The organization is already in the process of planning its Silver Anniversary Season, which opens in October with the thriller Wait Until Dark and includes theatre classics Our Town and The Music Man as well as the Steve Martin-penned comedy Picasso at the Lapin Agile.
