Goat in the Schools
Goat in the Schools is GRP's youth theatre show, and the only touring production in New Orleans that features student-written plays performed by professional actors.
2018 - 19 is the third year of Goat in the Schools. Each year, GRP chooses four plays written by fifth and sixth grade New Orleans students in the Play/Write program, stages them with adults, and professionally designs them with costumes, sound, and props.
Each play is accompanied by a short video introduction by the student playwright, discussing the inspiration for the play and the process of writing. Goat in the Schools empowers students to write creatively by featuring theater written by students, for students.
Beginning in September 2018, the production is out on the road!
Stay tuned for more details about this year's program and how to book it for your school.
