GCT prepares for 15th Summer Series

With generous support from The Cultural Alliance Of York County, Adams County Community Foundation and their wonderful Giving Spree, The Robert C Hoffman Charitable Endowment Fund, The Marie Keese Lelash Foundation, The Janet & Edward Riggs Charitable Endowment, Danny Sebright, Sharon Magraw, Kiwanis Club Of Gettysburg, The Optimists Club Of Gettysburg, The Eagle Riders Of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Eagles, and more, Gettysburg Community Theatre (GCT), the non-profit 501c3 organization located at 49 York Street within the first block of Lincoln Square in Gettysburg, PA, announces its 15th Annual Summer Children’s Theatre Series of theatre camps and children’s performances.
Having originated as a children’s theatre in 2009 but quickly understanding the community’s desire for more inclusive programming, GCT became a creative safe place not just for the young but also for the young-at-heart and people with special needs as well. GCT’s Education & Outreach Program has grown to include its children’s theatre productions, after-school programs, and summer day camps for grades K-12, a Senior Citizen production for ages 55+, and a special needs theatre program for ages 10+. Education & Outreach makes up 75% of GCT’s entire operations and currently serves over 2,000 volunteers, audience members, students, actors, directors, artists, and musicians from 5 different counties.
The 2023 Summer Children’s Theatre Series includes theatre day camps in July, where each week is a different play to learn with performances open to the public. There are still a few spots left in some of the K-12th Grade camps, which include Stories From Under The Big Top camp week July 10-14, with performances at 7 pm July 14 & 15 and 2 pm July 15, Pan! camp week July 17-21 with performances 7 pm July 21 & 22 and 2 pm July 22, Broadway Teens Concert 2 pm July 23, The Fairy Tale Network camp week July 24-28 with performances 7 pm July 28 & 29 and 2 pm July 29, and Hello, Shakespeare! camp week July 31-August 4 with performances at 4 pm August 4 & 2 pm August 5.
