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 twelve original performance works and toured to six states. In March of 2013, the company’s show Our Man was featured on the cover of American Theatre magazine.  GRP has been awarded competitive residencies around the country (The Berkshire Fringe Festival and the KO Fest) and has received funding for its artistic projects from the Network of Ensemble Theaters, the National Performance Network, the Puffin Foundation, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation. Locally, GRP has received six Big Easy Award Nominations and its podcast ‘This Sweaty City’ was featured as part of the Tank Drama exhibit at the Contemporary Arts Center in the summer of 2013.

In addition to its artistic work, GRP has been running Play/Write, its young playwrights’ program devoted to fostering young artists since 2009. In 2013, Play/Write expanded from a 10-week program in three schools, to a yearlong one in four schools. Play/Write has received funding from the Arts Council of New Orleans, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, the Emerging Philanthropists of New Orleans, the Gambit's Foundation for Entertainment, Development & Education, the Keller Family Foundation, and the New Orleans Theatre Association.
