Tuition Assistance and Scholarships

Theatre School Tuition Assistance

Theatre Denton Theatre School has full and partial tuition assistance available for our young actors. We believe every student should have access to learning through the arts. Tuition assistance funding is provided by generous donations from our community. To donate click here.

Tuition assistance is available for all Saturday classes, productions, and summer camps and is based on family need.

Applications are due within the first week of classes or camps.
