This year the Stockbridge Theatre has scholarship funding available to send two current Pinkerton Academy students to the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference in New York on January 14-16, 2021. These students will be accompanied by three members of the Pinkerton faculty. This delegation’s goal will be to meet with agents and scout artists for inclusion in future seasons at the Stockbridge. This scholarship funding includes conference registration fees, travel, lodging, meals, and tickets to multiple performances. Eligible candidates must be current members of the Sophomore, Junior, or Senior class at Pinkerton and must, at a minimum, be passing all of their current courses at the time of application submission. Prior to awarding the scholarships, parents/guardians will be contacted to confirm consent. Applications are due by December 13, 2021 and any applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
Due to current New York City COVID-19 guidelines, all conference attendees must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. In addition, attendees will regularly be asked to provide evidence of vaccination status at performance venues, restaurants, and other public spaces. Mask wearing will also be required in all public spaces.
In regard to mask use in the hotel rooms, we encourage all students to wear them when socializing. Because chaperones won’t be in the rooms with students, we cannot guarantee that this will be practiced. Furthermore, masks will be removed when eating or sleeping in the rooms. Participants should be aware of the risk of exposure and choose carefully whether to participate.
**What if I don’t get one of the scholarships?**
Students not selected for the scholarship will have the option of paying to attend the conference. The cost of conference attendance including travel, conference registration, lodging, and theatre tickets is $675/student. Please note that spots are limited and that they will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Please indicate in your application if you are interested in learning more about paying for the trip and Mr. Cahoon will contact you with more details.
