A 2006 National Endowment for the Arts study found that people who participate in the Arts are people who help make communities thrive…and a vibrant, thriving community is good for business!

 

With well over 30,000 people participating in or seeing CTG productions and programs each year, corporations and other organizations certainly enhance their visibility across our community when they sponsor CTG shows. At the same time, these sponsorship investments support CTG in its quest to provide high-quality theatrical experiences to ever-greater numbers of children, teens, adults, and seniors.

The Community Theatre of Greensboro has served the Triad and its surrounding areas for over 66 years, and is the oldest Arts organization in Guilford County.  CTG provides diverse theatrical entertainment in the form of main stage productions, youth theatre productions, and outreach programs. CTG also hosts dozens of classes, camps, and workshops for children, teens, adults, and seniors and has established a generous scholarship program so that all may benefit from exposure to the arts.

CTG’s mission is to provide the highest quality theatre productions and training possible to the widest audience available and to foster a broad base of interest in the community in drama and in the dramatic arts. Quality arts productions help to create a vibrant community; one that inspires adults and children to excel and builds understanding across all cultures in the community. CTG productions are open and available to every segment of our community; from young families who look forward to our family oriented shows to our community’s senior citizens. Community Theatre of Greensboro is proud of its long history of encouraging diversity—diversity in our staff, programming, volunteers, casts, artistic and technical crews, participants in our educational endeavors, and audience members. Corporations in our community can benefit from integrating the arts into the life of their companies by rewarding employees and their families with tickets to a performance.
