The Georgetown Theatre Workshop


OUR MISSION

The mission of the Georgetown Theatre Workshop is to introduce people to live stage performance. The public is welcome to attend the play productions for a nominal charge.
The Georgetown Theatre Workshop is a non-profit amateur theatre group, founded in 1974. A charter was signed on May 9, 1975.
The building that The Georgetown Theatre Workshop held most of their plays in, "The Old Grange," was sold in 2013. The home for Georgetown Theatre Workshop is now at the Perley School in Georgetown.
The GTW produces 3 plays a year, a fall, winter and spring production.
Each year, the GTW funds a scholarship for a local high school senior majoring in theatre. Portions of our proceeds have benefitted the Peabody Library of Georgetown and the Gazette Santa Fund.

PLAN YOUR VISIT

What to Expect

If you are planning to see your first show at the GTW, welcome! Georgetown Theatre Workshop puts on three main stage productions each season (Fall to Spring.)

Performances generally include two weekends, a 7:30 p.m. show on Saturday and a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m., followed by a 7:30 p.m. show on Friday and Saturday, and a 2:00 p.m. Sunday matinee the following weekend. Guests are encouraged to arrive early in order to find their seats and grab a complimentary cup of coffee or tea. Volunteer ushers will be present to guide you to your seat as well as answer any questions you may have.

There is no dress code for our shows, so whether you’re coming from work, school, or play, we encourage you to come on in!

Finally, don’t forget to stop by our concession stand. We offer concessions at each show including candy, chips, and drinks at reasonable prices. They are available for purchase before the show begins as well as during intermission.

We are so glad you have interest in seeing a GTW production, and would like to extend the invitation to support Georgetown’s one and only live theatre organization. No matter your background, the arts can be an enriching experience, and we hope you will become part of our theatre family.

Accessibility

We hope you will find our theatre a breeze to get around. The entry level (lobby, and concession stand) and performance area are wheelchair and power chair accessible via elevator. We also have a wheelchair/power chair accessible restroom.

Our ushers are happy to assist you in getting into your preferred seating arrangement. If you have any additional concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us through phone or e-mail prior to your visit!
