WAM Theatre donates $2,500 to Flying Cloud Institute


WAM Theatre has donated $2,500 from the proceeds of the recent limited run remount of its 2013 production of "Emilie: La Marquise du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight" to the Flying Cloud Institute of Great Barrington.

The funds will provide scholarships for 10 Berkshire County public school students to attend FCI's Young Women in Science training program, which takes place this summer at both Bard College at Simon's Rock and Berkshire Community College. The scholarship recipients will work alongside professional scientists in laboratory settings.

The Flying Cloud Institute is the 12th nonprofit organization that WAM Theatre has donated funding to since the theatre's inception in 2010.
