Since its inception, Cape Fear Community College’s Wilson Center has committed to being a true community resource. From high school graduations to free-of-charge dance residency performances, the Center hosts thousands of young people and underserved community members — but that’s only the beginning!
Through the generosity of private donors and a grant program administered by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County, the Broadway for a Better World initiative provides free-of-charge tickets to the Wilson Center’s PNC Broadway & Stars Series. The mission of this program is to make the theater experience and all of its associated benefits available to underserved populations, particularly young people under the age of eighteen.
Grant applications may be submitted at any time. Awards will be granted twice a year, once in January, and again in July. Awardees will be notified by the Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County.
Over the last several years, the value of ticket grants made by the Broadway for a Better World initiative has surpassed the $100,000 mark.
If your organization is interested in applying for the Broadway for a Better World Program, please contact Jacki Booth at email@example.com.
To date, numerous CFCC classes, student organizations, and community organizations have been ticket grant recipients, including:
The Tracy Wilkes Broadway for a Better World Student Scholarship is devoted to students who have participated in the Broadway for a Better World program. With financial need as the only other award requirement, this scholarship ensures that Broadway for a Better World recipients may receive assistance to further their education at Cape Fear Community College and transform their lives — without the traditional barriers of entry many students face daily.
The Tracy Wilkes Broadway for a Better World Student Scholarship was endowed by the Fuller Family, and welcomes the support of those who support the mission of the Broadway for a Better World initiative and the importance of access to educational opportunities for our community.
