Scholarship Program & Recipients

Each year since our inception it has been an objective of Coach House Players “to present scholarships to those such persons deemed worthy and deserving.”*1  So each year we award monetary scholarships to local students who are pursuing an education in the arts.  “The proceeds will be used to establish a scholarship for promising students at Kingston High School*2 interested in further study of the arts.  The scholarship will not be restricted to theatre interest.”*3
