Mission

The Group Theatre Too (GTT) produces quality entertainment that stimulates and supports an ensemble group of artists as well as the general public through productions, outreach, and educational Arts programs designed for a cross-generational clientele. GTT hopes to encourage diversity and the exploration of the human experience through theatre-dance-music performances and arts education programs that will require youths and adults to be active participants and advocates for others; aware of their surroundings and their ability to mediate and effect change.

GTT stages professional entertainment that touches on current social issues and reflects American generations. Through the celebration of artists and the art of entertainment, GTT hopes to communicate the fact that as many ways as we humans are different we share common bonds and can connect with everyone on some level bringing new understanding and compassion to our lives.

The Group strives to fulfill the dream of a theatre that speaks to and for it's audience and disregards any call for individual fame while embracing cooperation and collaboration in mounting pieces that exemplify the ensemble approach. GTT provides a meeting ground for a dedicated group of peers from all areas of the theatre and entertainment industries.
