A landmark partnership spearheaded by the City of New Brunswick, the New Brunswick Development Corporation (DEVCO), and several additional agencies and organizations, has funded construction of a performing arts complex on the site of our current theatre that will break ground in the Fall of 2017 and be completed in time for the grand opening of George Street Playhouse’s 2019-2020 Season.
Issue-oriented Educational Touring Theatre
GSP is proud to commission and produce touring theatre for young audiences. Conflict resolution, health and wellness, bullying and character education are addressed by our touring productions. Following each performance, our post-play discussions provide excellent starting points for engaging classroom conversations that can fulfill New Jersey Student Learning Standards for the Performing Arts.
A Musical Comedy
Reigning master of the X-box and junk food junkie, eleven-year-old Austin must face the long-term consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle when he learns his mother has been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. In partnership with The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey and ShapingNJ, this new musical comedy explores the challenges of one family learning how to make healthy choices together.
New Kid remains the Touring Theatre's most successful program, addressing racism, prejudice, peer pressure, and conflict resolution. New Kid asks students to explore issues of: moving to a new place, being the outsider, making and keeping friends.
