In celebration of Sonny Sonnenfeld's enthusiastic mission of training the theatrical lighting designers, technicians and sales force of tomorrow, Scott Parker is thrilled to offer the "Sonny Sonnenfeld Memorial Scholarship as my way of paying it forward. Sonny offered me a scholarship to the first Broadway Lighting Master Class and became a mentor." Parker adds "with this scholarship we will be able to welcome several students who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford the registration fee."
