The GOLDEN GOOSE AWARDS

Written and Directed by Katie Oberlander  |  Harborlight Montessori Experience Weeks

This performance culminates a two-week course bringing students to Gloucester Stage Company (GSC) for an intensive experience in theatre production, on stage and backstage. In addition to acting, students participate in all aspects of production, including box office management, lighting and set design, auditions and casting, costumes and props. Actors, assistant directors, stage managers, designers, and marketing and sales are all part of what it takes to stage an original production, which is what the students do on the GSC stage as the culmination of their theatre experience.

The GOLDEN GOOSE AWARDS is a World Premiere play written by Katie Oberlander (Mastermime, Out of Circulation), presented at Gloucester Stage Company Friday, March 22 at 7:00pm and Saturday, March 23 at 2:00pm. The show is approx. 80 minutes. Tickets are $15 and Students $8 – available online:
