If the world is a stage, GNS theatre students are in the spotlight! From heart-wrenching dramas, larger-than-life comedies, and whimsical musicals, our co-curricular theatre program challenges students to present a full-length production to a paying audience. Through the experience of putting on a show, our students refine their acting skills; build confidence speaking in front of large crowds; and discover the incredible magic that comes to life when a committed group dedicates their time and energy to a wonderful project.
Auditions are held in the fall, with rehearsals beginning quickly after. For those students who do not get a part in the show and still desire to be involved, backstage opportunities in costumes, props, lights, music, set, and stage management offer a unique chance to learn the intricacies of what goes on behind-the-scenes of a full-length production.
In recent years, our students have put on plays such as Our Town and Our Country’s Good as well as musicals such as Grease and Little Shop of Horrors.
