Nancy Goodwin Memorial Scholarship Fund
In honor of our founder, Performance Now Theatre Company has established a scholarship fund to aid and reward college students who are working toward a degree in the performing arts. proper theatre education of children and young adults was certainly one of Nancy’s passions. This includes acting, singing, and dancing. This fund has been developed so that we, as a community, can have the opportunity to help young students in pursuing their dreams in the world of music, dance, and theatre.
I hope that you will seriously consider contributing to this worthy cause, and I want you to know that I personally appreciate your support. Thank you very much.

I feel so fortunate to have been granted the Nancy Goodwin scholarship. The scholarship helped me pursue my higher education in stage management and the wonderful people at Performance Now enriched and supported my passion for creating theatre when I needed it most.

Being a part of a Performance Now production gave me my first experience in working alongside a multigenerational cast which meant I could ask people ahead of me in their careers about their involvement in theatre in their adult lives. Performance Now also gave me the necessary confidence I needed to communicate and function in a more professional environment. The expectations were different than that of educational theatre, which was my only experience previous to Bye Bye Birdie.
I went into college feeling more than prepared and ahead of the game in regards to what would be expected of me. The Nancy Goodwin Scholarship not only offered me financial assistance in pursuing my dream career, but also reminded me that there were people back home that believed in me.
