Classes at GCT
In the fall, GCT offers two courses of theatrical programming to our area home school students. These courses last between 9-12 weeks and allow students to further the fine arts education during their elementary and high school years. GCT also participates in the NEA Big Read program every year in partnership with the city of Germantown. This after school course for kid’s aged 6-14 culminates in a performance at Farm Park as a part of Fairy Tale Trail in October.
The Spring Semester also includes two courses of Fine Arts Education homeschoolers as well as an after school program.
Fairy Tale Trail presents: The Odyssey
We are so excited to announce this year’s Fairy Tale Trail performance at Germantown Community Theatre, a one act production of The Odyssey!
This adaptation of the epic poem follows not only Odysseus’s journey home from the Trojan war, but also his son Telemachus as he finds himself. Both face the perils of the sea, monsters, and their own limitations.
The show will be performed at GCT on October 29th and 30th with showings at 6:30 and 8:00 on both nights. Performances will be socially distanced and masks will be required on entry.NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.

Learn to write and workshop your very own plays! Students will learn the fundamentals of script writing, techniques for creating dialogue, and get the chance to have their works performed by their peers.
