The Billy Barnes Foundation is an organization dedicated to building and educating an audience for future generations through music and theater education. Multi Emmy Award-nominated Billy Barnes was a prolific and influential composer/lyricist in the 60s and 70s. His music was featured on Broadway in The Billy Barnes Revue and his work was included on hit television shows, such as The Carol Burnett Show, Laugh-In, and The Cher Show. Several of his songs, including “(I Stayed) Too Long at the Fair” and “Something Cool,” have become part of the Great American Songbook. This inaugural year, the Foundation will award two full-tuition scholarships to the Young Actors Theatre Camp, a non-profit organization in the Santa Cruz Mountains, that focuses on discovering and developing each individual student’s talents in ALL areas of the performing arts.

The event is presented by Fraser Entertainment Group and The Billy Barnes Foundation.
