About the Dinner:
The annual Spaghetti Dinner is a fundraiser for the Scholarship Program for the Stage Right Arts Foundation. The 2021-22 dinner is hosted by Stage Right Arts Foundation and performances are given by show choir students from Stage Right Performing Arts. A spaghetti dinner and desserts are served during the cabaret style performance.
This is a no-cut, student prepared cabaret - participation is first come, first served and completely student prepared. Audiences will enjoy solo, duet and small group performances and an evening of supporting the arts!
Where Funds Go:
The funds raised at the Spaghetti Dinner go to our Scholarship Fund (see below). For the 2019-2020 season, more than $11,500 in scholarships were provided to students in show choir programs. In 2018, these funds helped provide more than $16,000 in scholarships and tuition assistance for students right here in Kansas City. Whether a family is experiencing a short-term financial crisis (medical emergency, parent laid off, etc), or long-term aid is needed, SRAF hopes to help students continue their arts education without concern over financial barriers.

ABOUT THE FUNDS
The Stars Scholarship (in memory of Houston St. John 1995 - 2013)
This scholarship is awarded to a minimum of 2 male students for a performing arts summer camp experience ($475 value each). It is given in memory of Houston St. John, who played Javert in Stage Right Performing Arts' 2013 production of Les Miserables. Houston created a lasting legacy in his all too short life by being an incredibly kind, humble and encouraging person who always went out of his way to make everyone feel like a star. The scholarship name was derived from both the Stage Right Performing Arts' motto and the iconic song "Stars" which Houston performed in Les Miserables.
Stage Right Arts Foundation Scholarship Fund
This fund makes performing arts programs in Kansas City accessible to all, regardless of means. It is the eventual goal of this fund to provide financial assistance to students who want to participate in a range of arts education programs around the KC Metro. Remember, scholarships not only help families with on-going financial need, but also in times of temporary financial devastation caused by job-loss, home disaster or an number of financial challenges that can hit a family unexpectedly. Together, we can make sure no child has to lose their arts education when financial disaster hits the family.
