Gainesville Theatre Alliance is a nationally acclaimed collaboration between the University of North Georgia, Brenau University, Theatre Professionals and the Northeast Georgia Community.


For 40 years, Gainesville Theatre Alliance has celebrated the best of northeast Georgia. Our best lives in our fervent desire to love and support every member of our community. GTA stands in solidarity with all who demand an end to the systemic racism, the injustice and the violence that took the lives of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and so many before them. We long for the day when every child has the same opportunity to live a joyful and purposeful life.

As an organization and as individuals, we are responsible for more than words of support, but also actions that lead to healing change. GTA is committed not only to sharing stories that inspire and unite, but also to engage in communities outside the walls of our theatre to promote equality and opportunity for all.
