Shakespeare Sweepstakes

Once again, one lucky duck will get swept away by Shakespeare with a full scholarship to a session of the ASC Theatre Camp. All you have to do is enter for the chance to  make Cat’s life-changing experience last summer into yours this summer.

The Sweepstakes opens on February 15, 2017. Winner chosen on March 31, 2017.

How it Works

  1. Use the Sweepstakes Entry Form to put your name in for a chance to win a full scholarship to the 2017 ASC Theatre Camp.

  2. Tune in to our Facebook Live Sweepstakes Selection on March 31st to find out if you’re the lucky winner!

All eligible campers may enter or be entered for – friends, teachers, parents, and other family members may enter on behalf of a camper. However, everyone may only enter once – multiple nominations for the same camper will be deleted. Everybody gets one name in the pot and has the same chance of winning.

No, you do not have to apply to camp in order to enter the Sweepstakes – but if you win, you must then apply and be accepted in order to claim the scholarship. The Sweepstakes is not a way to get into camp without being accepted. If we deny the Sweepstakes winner’s application, we will choose a new winner from the remaining entries.

Registered campers may certainly enter the Sweepstakes to get the remainder of their tuition waived. Campers who are already paid in full are not eligible for the Sweepstakes. Campers who registered with partial payment will not receive a refund of tuition already paid if they win.

This brings me to a larger point about why we have this Sweepstakes at all: If you can afford camp, please pay for it. I want camp to be available to everybody. This Sweepstakes is one way of bringing camp to at least one person for whom attendance would otherwise be impossible. We all like to get something for free whenever we can – but please don’t enter the Sweepstakes just because it would be nice to get camp for free. We need your support. If you can afford to support camp by paying tuition, then you can also give a camper who could never otherwise attend a better chance of winning.
