About the Programming
Gorilla Theater Productions: Merging classical training with social activism. We began in 2011 with our first show, Jean Anouilh’s Antigone, performed in counter-culture hotbed Random Row Books with a pack of enthusiastic kids and teens ready to fight for their beliefs through art. That original project has inspired dozens of others in kind, and now we are a full-fledged company with our intimate black box and seven adult company members with productions and projects for children, teens, and adults. We are committed to socially relevant work, diverse casting, and LGBTQ+ safety and inclusion for all of our theater artists. As an educational theater company, GTP is designed to get you started if you’re new, give you that“chance” if you’re building your resume, and polish and pass on your skills if you’re an old hand. Whoever you are, wherever you come from, and wherever you may go – please join us for a moment in our little laboratory for the humanities.
