Classes at GCT


GCT offers two courses in the spring and the fall of theatrical programming to our area  students. These courses last between 8 -12 weeks and allow students to further their fine arts education during elementary to high school years. Each spring there is a class finishing with our annual Books on Stage performance. In the fall the Fairy Tale Trail class performs at Farm Park as part of Halloween Boo-Looza.

Afterschool Acting Class

Back again for the Fall! Step into the spotlight in this beginner to intermediate level acting class! Students will explore improvisation, ensemble acting, vocal techniques, stage movement, and build on their existing acting vocabulary through monologues and scenes from a wide range of theatrical styles and time periods. This is the perfect class for students who love being onstage and want to dig a little deeper into acting techniques!

This class will end in a short showcase on the final day of class for friends and family.

*This year, we will be adding a second session of this class due to popular demand! Please double check your time slot when you go to register.

Advanced Acting- Let’s Get Classical

This class is for teens in theatre who are ready to deep dive into more advanced acting techniques and texts. For fall 2024 we will be exploring classical pieces, including Greek tragedies, Moliere, Ibsen, and of course, a healthy dose of Shakespeare. Students do not need any experience with classical acting, just a background in theatre and an interest in learning! Students under 14 may be considered on an audition basis.
