Jim Cashell, Jr. Memorial Scholarship
This scholarship was generously sponsored by Bob & Nancy Cashell in memory of Jim Cashell.
James Bethel Cashell, Jr. was known for his work as an actor and director in the Reno theater community for many years. A 1954 graduate of the theatre program at the University of Houston, Jim continued his education at the American Theatre Wing in New York City and the Pasadena Playhouse. His many appearances during that time include Saranac Lake Summer Theatre, Burbank Little Theatre, Montrose Little Theatre, Le Petit Theatre Du Vieux Carre’ in New Orleans where he lived for several years teaching and performing. Upon returning to Reno in the 1970’s, Jim performed with Nevada Repertory Theatre for 20 years & was often found acting and directing at RLT during that time- most notably winning the award for Best Actor in the 1985-1986 Season.
This scholarship for RLT’s Broadway Our Way Program, reflective of Jim’s love of the theater, is intended to support children who show both a financial need and a true love and interest in the theatrical arts.
