Good Counsel Theatre Company
The Good Counsel Theatre Company (GCTC) offers students the chance to create theatrical performances that delight and entertain. Each year GCTC presents two main-stage productions. In the fall, GCTC produces a comedy or drama, and in the spring they stage a musical. There are also opportunities to perform in smaller productions during the winter. Students can join GCTC as performers or as stage crew members. As a part of the stage crew, students learn how to design, build, and paint sets, design and fabricate props, design lighting and sound effects, design and construct costumes, design and apply makeup effects, and manage the stage.
The Good Counsel Theater Company is proud to announce its presentation* of Sister Act Jr. Based on the hit 1992 film and Tony-nominated Broadway musical, Sister Act Jr. is the feel-good musical comedy that will have you jumping to your feet! Fun for all ages!!!
