Mission & History

Mission

Goat in the Road Productions is a New Orleans based performance ensemble dedicated to the production of original and invigorating new works of theatre, dance, performance art, and educational programming.

History

Since its 2008 inception GRP has created fifteen original plays for adult audiences and reached thousands of New Orleans students with its vibrant educational programming. Our work is meticulously researched, beautifully designed, and uses history and science to comment on current social trends. We have been nominated for nearly a dozen Big Easy Theater Awards, have toured throughout the country, been awarded competitive artist residencies, and in 2013 GRP’s Our Man was featured on the cover of American Theatre magazine. GRP has received funding for our artistic work from the New England Foundation for the Arts, the Network of Ensemble Theaters, the National Performance Network, the Puffin Foundation, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, among others. 

In addition to the artistic work, GRP has been running Play/Write, our young playwrights’ program devoted to fostering young artists, since 2009. Play/Write is incredibly popular with students, parents, and New Orleans audiences; staging plays with professional actors written by middle school youth. Play/Write currently hosts five year-long residencies in New Orleans schools, intensively reaching over 200 kids each year. In 2016, GRP expanded its youth programming by creating Goat in the Schools, a unique school-tour that brings student-written works to cafeterias, gymnasiums and libraries all over New Orleans.
