Scholarships

FOSCA offers financial aid to students who have a financial need, and show high interest and dedication to the program. Scholarships are offered for the fall and spring semesters.

Produce aerial performances

Another way we advance our purpose is by producing aerial performances. Whether they are smaller student showcases at the Sitka Cirque Studio or larger productions at the Performing Arts Center, the performances that FOSCA organizes provide students opportunities for creative expression, and give Sitkan audiences another option for artistic and athletic enjoyment. FOSCA is responsible for marketing, theater rental, ticket sales, budget management, community outreach, volunteer coordination & set design.
The proceeds from FOSCA’s productions helps to fund future performance opportunities and provide need-based circus scholarships for local Sitka youth and adults.

Get Involved

Our productions would not be possible without a high level of community support.  We depend on volunteers for the success of our shows.  The need is particularly great for the spring performances, especially when they are staged at the PAC.  We are always looking for help with costuming, sets, hair and make-up, backstage monitoring and ushering, plus contributing to and manning concessions tables.  Student showcases require a team to transform the studio into a performance space and back.

If you are interested in volunteering, or would like to join the Board, please contact FOSCA at friendsofsitkacirque@gmail.com

And, of course, we are always happy to take your donations to support our mission!
