“Students enrolled in GVT’s drama classes learn so much more than theater skills. They learn and demonstrate ensemble building, public speaking, a sense of community, empathy, and more. Each class becomes a little family where we look after each other, support one another, and gain life-long friends. The spring semester is special because each student enrolled will perform in a class showcase. The showcases are performed on GVT’s mainstage which is a magical experience for children and teens,” Education Director Courtney Susman said.
Spring Showcases are as follows:
- GVTots I & II: Once Upon a Time… (Apr. 11 at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.)
- GVTweens: Snow White (Apr. 25 at 6 and 8 p.m.)
- GVTeens I: The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet (May 2 at 6 and 8 p.m.)
- GVTeens II: 10 Ways to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse (May 2 at 6 and 8 p.m.)
- GVTeen Conservatory: Twelfth Night (May 11 and 12 at 7 p.m.)
Showcase rehearsals will take place during class, along with two additional mandatory technical rehearsals. Spring tuition for these classes is $90 ($125 for conservatory) per semester. Tuition for each additional child in the same family is $65 per semester. Need-based scholarships are available.
