The mission of the Chequamegon Theatre Association is to involve, educate, entertain, and enrich the Chequamegon Bay region through theatre arts. In 2012, in celebration of our 40th season, we instituted the Chequamegon Theatre Association Scholarship.  Although subject to change based on the quality and quantity of applicants, the CTA intends to award one scholarship per year in the amount of $500, which will be disbursed as a personal check once proof of enrollment is provided.
