Laura Keene's true story is an inspiration to single mothers everywhere.


Laura Keene was a single mother of two who  auditioned for a small role at a
theatre in London in order to feed her children. 

She came to New York in 1851, and became one the biggest stars of the
​American Theater, and one of the highest earning stars in its history.

 

The Laura Keene Fund is part of
​The Actors Hall of Fame Dramatic Arts Education Outreach.


The goal of the fund is:


 Support for single mothers with easy access to 
dramatic arts education tools that are designed to
build their self esteem, communication skills,
and access to jobs and services in their local communities.

Training and access to job opportunities in production support, administration, post production, logistics, costuming, and other positions in
the film, television and theater industries for single mothers.

The Laura Keene Fund for Dramatic Arts is being created by The Actors Hall of Fame Foundation to honor the accomplishments of one of most successful

and highly paid actresses and single mothers of all time.
