Award Program


The intent of this program is:

  1. to provide assistance that will foster the growth of interest in Gilbert & Sullivan operettas in the community,
  2. to maintain the traditions of the Gilbert & Sullivan genre,
  3. to create an opportunity for youth involvement,
  4. to encourage artistic excellence,
  5. to develop a talent bank for future productions of Gilbert & Sullivan operettas,
  6. to stimulate a wider appreciation of the G & S genre.

The Society will award a $2,000 scholarship to an accredited institution in the Region of Waterloo or Wellington County that produces a full-scale production of any of the 14 Gilbert & Sullivan operettas. The scholarship is designed to assist with production costs as there are no royalty fees for producing Gilbert & Sullivan works. As part of the scholarship, members of the Waterloo Regional Gilbert & Sullivan Society will be available for assistance and advice on the mounting of the production.
