GSC Theater is the most active 87 year old on the Glenville Campus.
The oldest student activity on campus is also one of the newest. We perform three productions each year, one in fall semester and two in spring.
Past performances have included Night of the Living Dead, Parallel Lives, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Three Musketeers, Sylvia, Brighton Beach Memoirs, As You Like It, and on and on and on…
Auditions are open to the entire GSC community. Our performers and crew include students, faculty, staff, and community members.
GSC Theater began as a student club, The Ohnimgohow Players, in 1926 with a production of the one-act heroic play, The Valiant. As the college acknowledged the academic importance of theater in the lives of well-educated students, the club began to include coursework and an academic component. In 1929 GSC became host to one of the first chapters of the national Alpha Psi Omega national honorary theatre society, which is still going strong.
We will produce an original production of Robin Hood on February 20-22 at 7:00 p.m. in the President's Auditorium located in the Harry B. Heflin Administration Building. This will be followed in April with another rousing production, title TBA.
In addition to acting, technical, and management activities, students have traveled to Washington DC for the past two years to watch plays. They also attend regional theater events like the Southeastern Theatre Conference.
