Artistic Profile:

 

The mission of Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) is to provide excellent professional theatre experiences to captivate the current generation of theatre-goers and nurture future generations. We fulfill this mission through the selfless ensemble collaboration of our artists, audiences and students. In all of our classes, workshops, and residencies we strive to develop collaborative learners who support one another. We learn to "fail with pride" so that we can grow as individuals and learn from our mistakes. As an organization, "selfless ensemble collaboration" means that the best idea wins, no matter where the idea comes from.

Sample Programs: Georgia Ensemble Theatre, North Fulton’s only professional theatre company, is thrilled to announce that schools and organizations will now be able to book any of our Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) productions throughout the entirety of the 2017-2018 school year. This now allows the opportunity to pick and choose what performances your school wants to see and when they best fit in the schedule! Perhaps you want to kick the school year off with the charming musical adaptation of Miss Nelson is Missing in September and then in the Spring explore the Indian jungle with Mowgli in The Jungle Book. Or maybe you want to book our powerful multi-media Holocaust drama, And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank, in October followed by The Giver, based on the Newbery Award winning novel by Lois Lowry, in December before Winter break. This great new touring model gives schools the flexibility to schedule performances in a manner that is convenient to each specific school.

Touring Dates:
September 25th-October 27th
November 13th- November 17th
November 27th-December 15th
January 29th- March 23rd
April 30th- May 18th

There will also be opportunities to bring students here to Georgia Ensemble Theatre throughout the year to see many of these performances. Check individual show information below for those dates.

All of our productions are performed and directed by professional Atlanta theatre artists, are kept affordable so that all students in the metro-Atlanta area have an opportunity to experience live-professional theater, and adhere to Georgia Standards of Excellence.

Literacy Through Drama: From the Page to the Stage (for K-8)
As a stand-alone or supplemental workshop, Literacy Through Drama: From the Page to the Stage (LTD) or The Living Study Guide connects students from Kindergarten to 8th grade to literary and curriculum assignments and GET Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) productions. Literacy through Drama is offered to all schools, especially those who are seeing a GET TYA production. At the beginning of each school year, teaching artists are trained to teach our LTD workshops by GET Education Director Laurel Crowe and Education Associate Molly Gilmartin.

This workshop focuses on adapting a piece of literature to a play. This workshop is available to all elementary and middle grades students. The workshop requires two class periods over two days per class. Children love the experience of creating a short piece of theatre from stories that they know and love. In the 2016-17 school year, this workshop is available for “Junie B. Jones, the Musical,” “James and the Giant Peach,” and “And Then They Came for Me: Remembering the World of Anne Frank” (one day/class).
