HCCT Awards $500 Drama Scholarships to Two Highland Lakes Area Grads

The Hill Country Community Theatre Board of Governors has awarded $500 drama scholarships to two Highland Lakes area students.

Caitlyn Thibodeaux, a 2011 graduate of Llano High School, and Duncan Hicks, a 2011 graduate of Marble Falls High School, will each receive an HCCT Phyl Holbert Memorial Scholarship. Both students have been active in theatre arts and both have performed in HCCT productions. Ms. Thibodeaux is planning to major in theater and business as New York University and Mr. Hicks plans to study vocal performance at Oklahoma City University.

“We are delighted to be able to award scholarships to these two outstanding students,” said HCCT Board President Maris Lynne Long.“HCCT’s Scholarship Program, along with its summer drama camp for youth, are important ways that the theatre gives back to the community. Both programs help HCCT achieve its mission of educating and encouraging participation in support of the performance arts,” she said.

HCCT’s Summer Drama Camp for Kids, open to children ages 6-12, will run June 6-17 at the theatre, 4003 West FM 2147, Cottonwood Shores. Thanks to donations by Pedernales Electric Cooperative employees and by the Highland Lakes Service League, along with individual donations, HCCT has also been able to offer a limited number of summer camp scholarships to children who would otherwise be unable to attend based on financial need.
