First year scholarshipS

The Neighborhood Playhouse is extremely delighted to announce

The Joanne Woodward First Year Scholarship

This scholarship will be offered beginning Fall 2018 to first year domestic applicants, and will be based on both merit and need. 

For nearly 90 years, The Neighborhood Playhouse has been a pillar of acting excellence. The talented actors that have walked through our doors are an immeasurable artistic patrimony to the world, just as world-renowned Academy Award-winning actress and Neighborhood Playhouse alumna, Joanna Woodward is. 

Ms. Woodward is one of those immeasurable talents.

We are immensely grateful to Ms. Woodward’s daughter, Clea Newman, and to Neighborhood Playhouse alumna, Emily Wachtel ('90), who was instrumental in constructing the framework for this scholarship.

Come follow your dream and join a legacy of excellence in actor training!
