The Okanagan Zone (O-Zone) of Theatre B.C. is offering a scholarship for further studies in theatre.

Named after Steve Heal, a long-time community theatre supporter from the Okanagan, the scholarship is available to those interested in on-the-stage and behind-the-stage studies.

The O-Zone is composed of Theatre B.C. member clubs of the Okanagan, including Powerhouse Theatre in Vernon and Asparagus Community Theatre in Armstrong. Their goal is to promote and make available community theatre to all ages. Member clubs perform a variety of theatre to their community and they also provide workshops and mentorships to their members.

Information and application forms can be found at the Theatre B.C. website at theatrebc.org/the-zones. Application deadline is April 15.

The winner will be announced at the O-Zone Drama Festival, being held this year at Powerhouse Theatre May 10 to 18.

Theatre B.C. is also offering The Jessie Richardson and Sid Williams Memorial Scholarships to a Grade 12 student pursuing theatre studies. Visit the Theatre B.C. website for more info.
