Werner & Sue Krause Scholarship

Scholarship Opportunity for Door County High School Seniors

Northern Sky Theater, together with Werner and Sue Krause, announce the establishment of an annual scholarship to support a Door County high school senior who is pursuing a course of study in various theater arts or music performance.

“As patrons of performing arts organizations throughout the state, we are keenly aware of the joy that live theater and music performances bring to audiences young and old,” stated Werner Krause. “This is particularly true of Northern Sky. They’ve been bringing generations of families like ours together to watch live theater for decades. We are pleased to support the young people of Door County in pursuing their dreams and careers in the arts.”

The Northern Sky Theater Werner & Sue Krause Scholarship is available to students pursuing a degree in theater or music performance who exhibit a love for theater or music performance and who have participated in the performing arts throughout their high school career. This scholarship has awarded $15,000 in support to graduates in the first three years.

Candidates must be in the final academic year (senior year) of their secondary education and plan to attend a postsecondary educational institution, full-time or part-time, in the fall of the academic year following graduation.

Additionally, past and future recipients of this scholarship can reapply for funding in their sophomore, junior and senior years of college. (Second-, third-, and fourth-year applicants must maintain all of the requirements of the scholarship to remain eligible.)

The scholarship application is available in the online database for the Door County Scholarship network. Application deadline is April 1st.

“The performing arts play an integral role in the economic success of Door County,” stated Managing Director, Dave Maier. “We have always fostered the education of new artists through our workshop process and intern program. This generous scholarship allows us to recognize the achievements of those students who are pursuing a future in one of the most important economic drivers of the tourism industry.” 

The mission of Northern Sky Theater is to create, develop and present professional musical and dramatic productions that will further the knowledge and appreciation of the culture and heritage of the United States.
