Students arrive at PGT for a variety of reasons, and at a variety of stages in their creative journey. No matter what brings our students through our doors, what they find here is an artistic haven — a creative home where they are challenged to think outside the box, to strive toward a level of artistry that will challenge our audience’s preconception of what children’s theatre is all about and to work within a group of dynamic, exceptional, emerging young artists in a collaborative environment… and to do it all while making life-long friends and having the time of their life!
Our work is focused entirely on the love of the craft and the life lessons that are a natural result of a healthy and non-competitive creative process. We are proud of all that our students accomplish, while they are here in our “home” and once they go out into the world. In essence, we see the artists they can become, while we celebrate the children they are.
