About Us

The Melanie and Rosalie Albright Foundation exists to support youth participation in all aspects of theater. We offer enrichment and needs-based scholarships to cover the cost of dance, vocal, and acting classes. We also offer performance and technical theatre opportunities several times throughout the year at no cost to the participant. Without the Melanie and Rosalie Albright Foundation’s scholarship program and free theatrical opportunities, young people with a passion for performing may miss out on pursuing their dreams.

The Melanie and Rosalie Albright Foundation is the only nonprofit organization in the Indianapolis area offering scholarships to youth ages 6-21 for participation in any performing arts-related opportunities at the awardee’s location of choice. In 2020, we have awarded five scholarships and have produced six virtual performances at no cost to the participant.

We rely on our generous donors for their financial support to bring scholarships and theatrical opportunities to youth passionate about the performing arts.
