Theatre Arts' First Night Circle is made up of individuals like you, organizations, and businesses who love the theatre and want the student artists of the Central Theatre Ensemble (CTE) to receive first-class professional training on stage, backstage and in the classroom.
Our purpose is to support the CTE program at Central Washington University, ensuring that it continues to provide the student body with a quality and progressive education in theatre arts, and the community with innovative and professional quality theatre productions.
Our goal is to ensure and maintain the artistic quality of CTE productions for CWU, Ellensburg and the surrounding region. The First Night Circle also provides educational program for Northeast theatre goers , supports innovative, creative and challenging theatre productions and most importantly support scholarships for talented students that make our productions possible.
Your contribution to The Circle helps us promote and support a wide range of activities in which CTE is engaged to enrich the cultural life within our community. The only thing missing is you!
