Members of the Georgetown Theatre Alliance gather for a happy hour and new play reading in NYC (August 2019).
A Christmas Carol
Saturday, 5 December at 5:00 PM ET
GTA is excited to announce that it's co-producing, along with Mask and Bauble, a virtual production of A Christmas Carol. In a new spin on a campus tradition, we will bring together alumni and students from across the Georgetown theatre community to perform this Christmas classic. Normally performed alongside the on-campus Christmas tree lighting, this year's events aim to bring us together despite the separation.
Interested in auditioning? Sign up here. Auditions are via video submission or Wednesday, 2 December, from 7:30-9:30 PM EST.
The performance will take place at 5:00 PM ET on Saturday, December 5th. Get your free tickets here.
Immediately following the performance of A Christmas Carol, please join GTA for a happy hour to toast the company and bring some much needed holiday cheer. Grab some champagne or a nice mug of hot chocolate and put on your best ugly sweater! RSVP here.
Script Reading Club
Next Meeting: Sunday, 13 December at 12:00 PM ET
GTA is launching a script reading group (think a book club for scripts) and we'd like to invite any interested students to join us! Each month, we will read a script written by a Georgetown alum and then come together to discuss it with the writer. It's a great chance to connect with the wider Georgetown theatre community and read some awesome scripts in the process.
If you would be interested in participating or would like to suggest a play to read (especially if it is a play written by a Georgetown alum - and even more especially if it is a play written by you!), please email us at email@example.com.
GTA, in collaboration with the Black Theatre Ensemble, Mask & Bauble Dramatic Society, and nomadictheatre thanks everyone who joined in supporting Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) DC and Black Lives Matter (BLM) DC. Together we raised...
$1,215 from 20 students,
12 alumni, and 1 parent
With the matching contributions from members of the GTA steering committee, we've donated $1,015 to BLM DC and $1,200 to SURJ DC. We encourage you to continuing supporting these organizations and others in your local area in whatever ways you are able. Thank you for helping us to stand with the Black community today and every day.

With arts venues and organizations around the world closed to support social distancing measures, performing artists have developed incredibly creative ways to share their work with the world and each other. One of the ways they have been doing so is by creating virtual festivals, like the Stay at Home and Social Distancing festivals, where people can view selections from rehearsal, live-streamed performances, and on-going series. Inspired by these festivals, as well as by the tradition of BTE's Coffee Houses on campus, the Georgetown Theatre Alliance is proud to launch a virtual platform for elevating the work of the Georgetown performing arts community: the Online [Off-Campus] Project.
The Georgetown Theatre Alliance (GTA) is dedicated to strengthening the connections among the theatre alumni community of Georgetown University. It aims to foster the professional, educational, and personal development of Georgetown students and alumni interested in theatre.
