About Us

The Culture

The Gainesville Theatre Alliance is a collaborative ensemble of students, community members and professionals that recognizes learning and growth as its primary goal. We nurture the development of skills, intellect, commitment and a generous spirit.

Our ensemble consists of members performing individual roles while sharing common goals. Our work in the theatre is distinguished by our dedication, pride and joy. Our relationship to each other and our audience is distinguished by genuine respect and compassion.

The success of our process from goal-setting to problem-solving to evaluation is built on open and honest communication. Our health as individuals and as an organization depends on the balance of work and play, competition and support, effort and reward. The reward is the opportunity to work among a group of people dedicated to celebrating life through theatre – to learn and grow.

We, the members of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance strive to fulfill this pledge and welcome anyone who shares these values and goals.
