“I have always spoken of my time in the local Cincy theatre scene as my most developmental – many of those groups gave me the chance at a VERY young age to do work that, while perhaps not for a salary, was worth a gold mine in experience and freedom.  There’s no question that things like the ACT scholarship helped me make it through CCM and on to other paths of success.”

-- Richard Oberacker, "Ace" and "Bandstand" Broadway composer and two-time ACT Scholarship Winner
