The Governor's Program for Gifted Children

GPGC 2024 | JUNE 9 – JULY 20

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

GPGC gave me a sense of community,

a place where being smart was acceptable, where bullying was not the norm, and where creativity was welcomed.
