Become a Theatre and Dance Patron
There is no better way to support the Casper College Theatre and Dance program than by becoming a patron. Established in 1985, the patron program makes it possible to support the high quality programs that support Casper College’s reputation in the arts. Through the generosity of our patrons, the program has been able to grow, attracting high-quality theatre and dance students.
Theatre and dance 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:
- Scholarships that financially support theatre and dance students.
- Guest artists are a cornerstone of the theatre and dance educational program that provide students exposure to the professional worlds of theatre and dance.
- Play productions, where a portion of every donation is used to supplement the cost of producing plays and dance concerts.
