We at 4th Wall believe in the highest caliber of support for our students. But we also know that comes with pricing beyond some budgets. Fear not! We have various grants and scholarships that can ease the hiring process, as well as opportunities for private citizens to gift to our cause.

If you would like to help support theatre you can sponsor a student or a classroom.
