Our Mission

Education Through Collaboration

Theatre is the ultimate in collaborative art and GTA is collaborative to its core through our two-university structure. We strive to educate through a culture of trust, empowerment, and respect for our fellow artists.

Continuous Growth of the Artist

GTA nurtures the development of skills, intellect, commitment, and the cultivation of a generous spirit. Open and honest communication champions the growth process from goal-setting to problem-solving to evaluation and improvement.

Building Community and Connection

Theatre teaches us what it means to be human. It inspires empathy and conversation. GTA productions allow students to practice their craft in real-time, engaging with audiences to tell stories that matter to our students, our community, and our world.
