Colby Rivara Scholarship Fund
Read more about Colby Rivara and his passion for theater
This scholarship fund is dedicated to the memory of Colby Rivara, who passed away in 2021 at the age of 19. From a young age, Colby demonstrated an intense passion for the arts, from teaching himself to play the electric guitar, to developing his scenic carpentry skills at the Windsor High Nueva School of the Arts.
In the winter of 2020, he volunteered his time at the 6th Street Playhouse as part of his senior project, and under the wing of our technical director, he helped to build sets for both the productions of Oliver! and Sweeney Todd. Among many other things, Colby loved theater for its inclusion of all people, and its tendency to make everyone feel as though they belonged.
The 6th Street Studio is proud that this memorial fund carries his name and will direct all donations toward sponsoring families in our programs who cannot afford them.”
Your donation to the Education Fund will help with outreach, development, and supplies, including props, building materials, and scripts!
