The Penny Black Scholarship 

The Penny Black Scholarship named in honor of the first winner of Dancing For The Stars and former Board President, is a special scholarship fund to help CBTC actors further their career through helping to pay travel expenses for college visits, out of town auditions, etc. DFTS helps young actors achieve their dreams while removing financial burden as much as possible.

From the Executive Director, Lesia Kaye

Having grown up in North Carolina, I wanted to share my experiences in the Professional Theatrical world with other kids who I knew were hungry for it just like I was.  Robert Clater and I founded CBTC in order to open doors and opportunities to fellow North Carolinians who dare to dream of a bigger and brighter future full of passion and song!
