The Gainesville Theatre Alliance (GTA) is a unique collaboration between a public college and a private university, theatre professionals and the northeast Georgia community. This extraordinary alliance between the University of North Georgia (UNG) and Brenau University, which pools faculty talent and three state-of-the-art performance spaces, focuses on individualized training while emphasizing strong ensemble and support. GTA combines challenging course work (ACE Award for Academic Excellence) with a quality production program (ACTF National Finalist). 

The quality of production activity at GTA is far above that found at most colleges and universities at the undergraduate level. In essence, GTA is a professional theatre attached to a college theatre program. This is a model found, almost exclusively, in highly competitive conservatory programs. Theatre majors from both institutions take classes together, on both campuses, as well as work together on all production projects.

Find out more about this training program, its history and how to get tickets by visiting the Gainesville THEATRE Alliance website.

The video is a visual montage with music of theatre students in various stages of building community to support each other’s work while creating the technical and performance elements of the 2013-14 season shows.

Students in our program have several degree options through both partner schools:
