CTG's History and Mission
Founded in 1949, the Community Theatre of Greensboro is the oldest Arts organization in Guilford County. In these uncertain economic times—when other Arts groups are struggling across the country—CTG is growing stronger by reaching out to a wider segment of our community and focusing on our mission:
Bringing our diverse community together to learn about, experience, and celebrate the joys of theatre.
Our goal is to help everyone in our community share in the excitement of participating in theatre—as actors, backstage crew, or audience members. We cherish diversity and non-traditional casting is a priority for us.
Every year, CTG provides a wide assortment of theatrical entertainment, including:
- Five main-stage productions, including The Wizard of Oz, which is seen by more than 10,000 people across the Triad each November;
- Youth Theatre and Centerstage Youth Performing Group productions;
- Several family-focused productions, such as The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (December 2009), Dr. Doolittle (May 2010), and Willy Wonka (summer 2010);
- Seniors Reaching Out (SRO)—musical and theatrical reviews put on by seniors for other seniors in our community; and
- TRIAD IDOL, which serves as both a showcase for the incredible musical talent in our community and a channel that CTG uses to find new talent.
CTG also hosts dozens of classes, camps, and workshops for children, teens, adults, and seniors. And—with our generous financial aid program—we never turn anyone away for lack of funds.
