Every year all our students take part in a full stage production with professional lighting, sound and sets. Through the rehearsals, preparation of costumes and props and the run of several performances, they learn what it takes to be part of a company. This means working with one another, respecting other performers and crew, pushing through when it gets hard. It also means huge excitement and enjoyment as Gorey Little Theatre becomes our home for show week.
Here is a reminder of some of our past productions. Click on the poster for photographs (select shows only).
