Student Productions

Why are student productions important?

GCT includes two mainstage shows as a part of its theatrical season that are cast with our students. Students take center stage and perform for our Patrons and Creative Partners. GCT believes the theatrical experience builds character and self-confidence in our students. There is no fee to be in these productions and the artists cast do not have any responsibility to sell playbill ads.  The theatre is proud to offer our students the chance to take the community stage for the first time.

MAINSTAGE STUDENT PRODUCTIONS

Season 53 begins with Antigone or And Still She Must Rise Up.
July 12th-28th

 
The plague has not yet left Thebes. In a broken world at the edge of plague, famine, and war a new leader rises. Director Jamie Boller-Raup and a cast of formidable young adult performers take on this compelling adaptation of Antigone that asks, “what would it take for this to no longer be a story about one girl who rises up against injustice- but for all of us to listen, rise up, and stand with her.”
 
Showtimes are Fri/Sat 7:30pm & Sun. 2:30pm
Sensory Friendly Performance with sign language interpreter Sun. July 21st
 
Indigenous playwright and activist, Madeline Sayet, adapted this Greek classic during the pandemic for the 2020 moment to be performed masked and distanced deepening the impact of the plot in a modern setting. This adaptation remains relevant in 2024 without the need for pandemic precautions as all Greek dramas continue to find new life reflected in each generation.

NO AUDITION STUDENT PRODUCTIONS

GCT produces two other student productions each season that require NO audition to participate in, making it a perfect low-stress way for students to try out theatre. In the fall, GCT performs at the Germantown Halloween Boo-Looza as a part of our annual Scary Tale Trail. The show consists of short fun but spooky scenes and stories and has a very light rehearsal schedule. In the spring, GCT has an offering called Books On Stage, in which our students perform works based on literature. This show is also a student designed production, giving young artists a chance to bring their work to life onstage. The past two springs GCT has collaborated with the theatre space at The KROC Center of Memphis so our Books On Stage team can experience bringing their show to a second performance space!
