BCCT stands alone in what we have to offer children interested in the performing arts. Building self-esteem, character and the importance of teamwork is just a small part of what BCCT instills in our children. Our program also offers our graduating high school seniors the opportunity to receive a monetary award to help further their education, whether it be college or a trade school. Every child who is eligible receives a Scholarship. To date we have given out over $94,000.
The 2018 Scholarship recipients are: AnnieRose DiMurro, Clarissa Shirley and Hope Trenkler.
BCCT wishes them the best of luck in all their future endeavors!
The Cal Seymour Memorial Scholarship
In 2007, The Cal Seymour Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of our mentor and our friend. We’ll always remember “At 60 feet — Perfection!” Under his guidance and instruction, our sets were able to achieve a level of professional quality that was admired and respected by all who attended our shows. He helped to get us where we are today. The scholarship is given to a graduating senior who exemplifies Cal's love for the theater.
The 2016 recipient is Marissa Paolella.
