Good Counsel’s theatre program nurtures young theatre makers through a combination of curricular coursework and extracurricular involvement with shows produced by the Good Counsel Theatre Company. Students are encouraged to explore a variety of theatrical disciplines with opportunities to work both onstage and backstage. We offer a broad range of courses so that students may explore the depths of their talents in acting, directing, playwriting, and aspects of theatre design.

Complete descriptions of theatre classes are available from pages 37–39 of the Course Offerings Bulletin. For information on Fine Arts scholarships, click here.

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 - a fall musical comedy/drama and a spring 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.

Good Counsel’s production of “Once on This Island” was nominated for four Brandon Victor Dixon Awards (the DMV’s regional awards program for the National High School Musical Theatre or “Jimmy” Awards), including Best Musical, Best Actress and Actor (top 10), and Achievement in Technical Theatre.
