How Do We Use Your Money?
Since the Krampert Theatre Patron Program was developed during the first year of the operation of the Gertrude Krampert Theatre in 1985-86, it has become the major factor in the success of the theatre (now theatre and dance) program at Casper College. Through the generosity of our patrons the program has been able to grow, attracting high quality theatre and dance students.
In addition, the theatre productions have become a pillar of the arts scene in central Wyoming. Through the years the fundraising program has been guided by community volunteers; our Casper College Theatre Advisory Board. The Advisory Board has prioritized expenditure of donated funds as follows:
The coming year will be the sixth year the Board has supported a large number of tuition scholarships. When our dance program really began to develop beginning about six years ago, there was no longer enough scholarship funding available to cover the increased student need. The Board made helping students its first priority and now patron funds help 20 students per year.
- Guest Artists:
A cornerstone of the theatre and dance educational program is exposure of students to the professional worlds of theatre and dance.
- Play Production:
A portion of every donation is used to supplement the cost of producing plays. This is the cost of the ticket portion of each donation. For example, the royalty costs of Little Shop of Horrors were paid by the patron program.
