2021 Scholarship Recipient:
Lillie Hodgson

With great pride, Duncan Little Theatre announces our 2021 Scholarship recipient: Lillie Hodgson. Lillie has been continuously involved with Duncan Little Theatre since her first performance in “The Music Man” in 2012. She has performed in numerous plays and musicals, worked as assistant Director for several shows, worked on set design and construction, helped with painting, prop and costumes, lighting, and served as a sound technician for DLT’s Children’s Theatre Experience program for multiple seasons. Lillie plans to attend Cameron University this fall, and will pursue a Bachelors of Music degree in Piano Performance.

In her eloquent essay, Lillie said, “Being able to work so closely with people who share my passion and love for the arts has been amazing. Every single show I have performed in, every set I’ve worked on, every prop I’ve painted, I’ve been surrounded by lovely, hard working people who want nothing but the best for the people around them. Theater, especially community theater, is unselfish and pure. Because of the creative freedom that DLT has given me, I have learned to trust myself and have gained confidence in my artistic abilities. DLT has helped me immensely as an aspiring artist and musician, as well as a person.”

Thank you, Lillie, for being such a warm and hardworking volunteer for DLT. We wish you the best in your future endeavors and hope to see you on the DLT stage again very soon!

2020 Scholarship recipient:
Caden Spurgin.

Duncan Little Theatre is proud to announce the selection of our 2020 Scholarship recipient: Caden Spurgin. Caden has been continuously involved with Duncan Little Theatre since his first performance in “The Music Man” in 2012. He has performed in numerous plays and musicals, worked on set construction, painting, prop and costume design, lighting, sound, and served as stage manager for DLT’s Children’s Theatre Experience program for multiple seasons. Caden plans to attend Cameron University and pursue a BFA in Musical Theatre.

When asked about his experience with DLT, Spurgin noted, “I now know, thanks to DLT, that I am enough. My experience with this community and with every director and choreographer that I have worked with, has taught me to never give up. To fight for what you believe and continue fighting, even if all you see is a never ending sea of darkness, because there is light. And if you feel yourself drowning in that darkness, all alone, know that there are people who are ALWAYS watching out for you. Know that there are people who will pull you out and build you to the highest heights. That is what DLT has taught me.” Thank you, Caden, for being such a hardworking volunteer for DLT. We wish you the best in your future endeavors and hope to see you on the DLT stage again very soon!
