Goshen Theater Drama Club 2022

About GTDC

Goshen Theater Drama Club brings educational opportunities to the youth of our community and those in surrounding areas. Students explore their artistry in exciting and challenging ways. We make programming accessible to all students – those with a desire to perform or make art behind the scenes.

Through singing, dancing, acting, and technical theater design, students explore all aspects of the performing arts.

Art and culture lessons are also provided to students through discussions about the origins of storytelling and performing arts globally and how these inform theater today.

We explore character development, story creation, and technical theater design through hands-on creation. Through puppetry, improvisation, costume design, stage makeup, or lighting design, we bring practical skills to life.

GTDC focuses on teaching our students to be artists of the world. We encourage them to find ways to use their art to give back to their community.

GTDC Monthly Meetups

GTDC is offering dynamic monthly meetups for students to explore their art. Each session concentrates on a different discipline within the performing arts, from acting to stage makeup design and set painting techniques. Students are invited to share what they would like to learn to help us develop meaningful programming to serve them.

The first GTDC Meetup, April 2 from 1 to 2 p.m., will focus on acting skills. This class is open to students from 8 to 14 with any level of experience. Additional sessions and age groups may be added at a later date.

Tuition for April’s session is $10, and financial assistance is available.

Goshen Theater Drama Club’s Summer Camp

Goshen Theater Drama Club’s Summer Camp is a unique, three-week program focusing on fine arts learning, fun, and performance. Participants learn about theater, design, storytelling, history, and teamwork. Classes are held at the newly-renovated, historic Goshen Theater.

Professional instructors and local educators serve as guides for this one-of-a-kind program. The culmination of the three-week experience is a live performance on the Goshen Theater Stage! Each student’s design work and group projects will be displayed in a gallery show in the GT lobby.

The Drama Club’s summer camp doesn’t just focus on performers: Students are exposed to every aspect of theater production, helping to create and design their final show. From program design to costumes and scenic painting, the Goshen Theater Drama Club’s three-week summer program is for youth, by youth!

We believe practical, hands-on creativity is the best way to learn, and you’ll be surprised how much theater arts has to teach about math, science, English, writing, and creative problem-solving.

Two tracks are available to campers: “Performance” and “Technical Theater.” While every student will experience both performance-based and technical design lessons, we want them to explore art in the most exciting – and comfortable – ways for them. Performance track students will be on stage for the showcase, while Technical Theater students will create designs, running the productionfrom behind the scenes.

Tuition:

Full Three Weeks – $250/student

One or Two Weeks – $100/week

Financial aid and Scholarships are available. Email GTDC@GoshenTheater.org for more information.
