(Fargo, ND) -- The Trollwood Performing Arts School in Fargo is announcing $17 thousand dollars in grants, received from several FM area donors.
"It is the support that we need in order to keep our programs alive and be able to offer, you know for our STAR program we offer scholarships to our students so it gives them the opportunity to participate," said Trollwood's Executive Director Kathy Anderson.
Anderson says some of the money will be used to support general operations, and some will be dedicated to the STAR program for "Students at Risk". Donors include The Arts Partnership, The FM Area Foundation, Fargo-Moorhead Sertoma Club, Kiwanis of Fargo, Shiloh Masonic Lodge #1 and Excel Energy Foundation.
Last summer's Mainstage Musical, "Singin in the Rain" was postponed to this summer. Anderson said the move was necessary because of the labor shortage and the cost of materials for building sets. Anderson is hopeful the event will take place this year.
