Wonder if your child might be bit by the acting bug? Want to give them the extra bit of confidence they need to shine? Students involved in the arts tend to have higher academic performance and better test scores.  Public speaking skills, ability to work with a team to achieve a goal, self discipline and learning to accept feedback are just some of the benefits for your child!

Our most advanced youth performance group, this intermediate level class will challenge your child singing 2-6 part harmonies, learning various and diverse elements of performing, always chosen to challenge and expand the needs of this elite group. Members of ENCORE! will delve deeper into tight harmony and complex rhythms. They also greet and seat our patrons on show nights at GCT, perform for community events, as well as mentor the Jr Players. Behavior is as important as performance ability for this group, as they must set the example for the younger groups. Although they have loads of fun, professionalism is a must as they represent our theatre.

ENCORE! will open ALL MAINSTAGE PERFORMANCES at GCT in the 2024 season, requiring a major commitment of between one and three performances a week in addition to rehearsals.
