HELP US SHARE THE BENEFITS OF MUSICAL THEATRE EDUCATION THROUGH SCHOLARSHIPS and double your gift.
An anonymous donor and strong advocate of the benefits of children’s musical theatre will match proceeds from ticket sales and scholarship donations up to $15,000, doubling the impact for our Scholarship program. For every $1 you give until Saturday night, Wildfish gets $2 to provide high quality musical theatre education to students needing tuition assistance or to bring our program to an under-served school.
DON’T MISS OUR ANNUAL
SCHOLARSHIP FUNDRAISER PERFORMANCES
This is a picture of me with one of the original nine Wildfish students, Aiden Snasdell. I met her when she was just 6 years old and I got the chance to work with her for 12 years before she headed out to the University of Texas.
When she was a senior, she told me that she wanted to create a show, an event, to leave behind an opportunity for Wildfish to gain a little help from its patrons. Many people never knew that we often awarded scholarships. Aiden believed that many families and individuals would seize the opportunity to contribute toward the scholarships we awarded.
She was right. See, we never would turn a scholarship student away, but with the help of this fundraiser we can cover the cost of upwards of 25 scholarships a year. I look forward to seeing everyone there April 6!

I am immeasurably grateful for your seemingly endless generosity of time, talent and donations. Our first annual Scholarship Fundraiser Event was an evening filled with entertainment, friendship, fond memories, fun surprises and a goal met!
Put into motion by our community-minded teenagers, a very ambitious goal was set to raise a scholarship fund of $20,000. Thanks to their vision and the enthusiastic kindness of our Wildfish families and friends, we will be able to continue to teach more children who would otherwise not have the opportunity to take advantage of the countless benefits of musical theatre education. As many of the seniors shared on Saturday, Wildfish is not just about singing, acting, and dancing. It is also an opportunity to connect with a community, to learn leadership, teamwork, accountability, thinking on your feet, and the list goes on.
Thank you to everyone for sharing so whole-heartedly.

THANK YOU FROM THE 2016 CAST
When I met my graduating friends for coffee to discuss my idea to raise $20,000 for a Wildfish Scholarship Fund, we all knew it was a really high goal. But we also agreed that we wanted to make sure students who shared our passion formusical theatre would not miss out due to limited finances. Most of us started at Wildfish Theatre when it opened eight years ago. We could not imagine missing the lessons we have learned at Wildfish that have prepared us for whatever we choose to pursue in our lives, from the arts, to engineering, to law. On behalf of the graduating seniors and the entire cast, we cannot thank everyone enough who came to see our show, contributed to the fund, and volunteered to help in so many ways. You are all superstars!
