The mission of the Granville Little Theatre is three-fold:
To engage the larger community with the arts by inspiring, challenging, and entertaining using classical and experimental theatrical techniques
To educate and support the next generation of actors, stage professionals, and artists
To take an active role in supporting disengaged groups of the community by providing a safe space for discussion and self-expression
We will meet these goals by using the power of theatre to engage in artistic expression and promote the greater region and community.
Since 1982, the Granville Little Theatre has been serving as a nonprofit organization to help budding actors grow in their ability to entertain and to heal the greater community through the arts. Now dedicated to exploring new ways that theatre can help heal societal wounds and bring people together in unique ways, our small group has grown a great deal. We now present local productions, musicals, workshops, retreats, campus visits, and scholarships. Organizing the more than 30 unique programs the theatre offers annually, our esteemed group of board members includes the following long-term directors.
Granville Little Theatre is a 501(c) nonprofit organization created in 1982 to enrich the local community. In 1998, our mission statement changed to be more inclusive, as it became clear that the best way to serve the local community was through education.
At a minimum, our organization will complete the following annually:
Produce five shows (including at least one musical), two of which use exclusively local cast and stage help
Offer 18 theater workshops, including at least five acting-focused workshops for disenfranchised groups and a minimum of eight non-acting-focused workshops for other artistic and technical skills relating to theatre
Coordinate three visits to locals schools and community centers to distribute knowledge of the psychological and health benefits of theatre
Offer and coordinate three separate scholarship programs focusing on different groups of candidates, with at least one focused on those planning on an acting career
