We are pleased to support the young people of Door County in pursuing their dreams and careers in the arts."
 
The Northern Sky Theater Werner & Sue Krause Scholarship is available to students pursuing a degree in theater or music performance who exhibit a love for theater or music performance and who have participated in the performing arts throughout their high school career.

The scholarship application is available in the online database for the Door County Scholarship network. The link is also available on www.NorthernSkyTheater.com. Application deadline is April 1st.  
 
"The performing arts play an integral role in the economic success of Door County," stated Managing Director, Dave Maier.

This generous scholarship allows us to recognize the achievements of those students who are pursuing a future in one of the most important economic drivers of the tourism industry."
