Germantown Community Theatre, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in 1972, first performing in the Germantown Community Center before moving to the old chapel of the Presbyterian Church (formerly St. George’s Church) in 1973. In 1981, a group of dedicated volunteers rehabilitated the quaint turn-of-the century schoolhouse at 3037 Forest Hill-Irene Road into the theatre that can be found there today – increasing its audience capacity by 50%. In 1990, the 112-seat theatre was refurbished and a rehearsal hall was added to the property – easing the growing pains of the theatre.

In addition to our main season, we host educational and outreach programs for children and teens, encouraging the continued development of creativity and imagination.  Your support is key to our success.  Together, we can build the next generation of theatre artists.

Change in Programming:

Children at Performances:

Due to fire codes, everyone (including infants) must have a ticket for a designated purchased seat. There are no exceptions. Children should be able to sit in a seat quietly throughout the performance. Unless a performance is clearly geared to children, GCT recommends against bringing babies and young children (under three) to performances. Parents are advised to use their discretion when purchasing tickets for children.


Free Parking is available on the GCT grounds, behind the Bonnie Robinson Rehearsal Hall building and across the street in the shopping center parking lot.

General Policies:

GCT prohibits outside alcohol, food or drink in the building unless prior permission is granted.
The use of cameras and recording devices is prohibited.
The use of tobacco products is not permitted in the building.
Latecomers will be seated at an appropriate time in the performance at the discretion of the house manager on duty.
Prior to performances and during intermission, GCT sell sodas and snacks. Please note: No food or drink is permitted inside the theatre.
There is no specific dress code. While most people “dress up” for evening performances, a number of patrons dress casually whenever they come to GCT. For weeknights and matinee performances, people tend to dress more casually.

    How do you define “Senior” for purposes of ticket prices?
