The Governor's Program for Gifted Children

GPGC 2023 | JUNE 4 – JULY 22

Drama and Musical

Every summer, the GPGC produces a major musical as well as a drama. This is done to provide students with the opportunity to learn about the performing arts and to awaken possible latent talents in students. The Musical and Drama classes are perennially some of the most popular afternoon classes, with most students participating either on stage or in backstage roles providing the technical aspects of theatrical productions.

Recently Performed Musicals:

The Pirates of Penzance
The Pajama Game
Once Upon a Mattress

Recently Performed Dramas:

The Importance of Being Earnest
Noises Off
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Wait Until Dark

One of the best parts of the program

for me was, for once, it allowed me to be one of the "normal" kids, instead of the "brainiac" nerd. I cherish that gift.
