Musical Theatre West 2019 Scholarships

Awardees Mica Ramos, Bianca Porciuncula and Amanda Angeles.

Musical Theatre West Footlighters scholarships were awarded recently to three Long Beach students who showcased overwhelming talent in the theater arts at their high schools, a release said. 

Those students are Bianca Porciuncula, a sophomore at St. Anthony High School, and Amanda Angeles and Mica Ramos, both juniors at Long Beach Poly High School.

“I believe that not only my never-ending love and passion for theater will help me accomplish my goals, but that hard work will also get me there," Porciuncula said in a release.

The Long Beach Unified students were joined by other awardees from Huntington Beach, Irvine, Aliso Viejo and Palos Verdes. Since the the organization's inception in 2005, more than $109,000 has been awarded to high school students from Los Angeles and Orange counties, the release said.
