The Neighborhood Playhouse is extremely delighted to announce
The Joanne Woodward First Year Scholarship!
This scholarship, which began being offered in Fall 2019, is available to first year domestic applicants. Applicants chosen for the Joanne Woodward First will be chosen 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, Joanne 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!
