Georgia Ensemble Theatre Announces 27th Season

Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) Co-Founder and Producing Artistic Director Anita Allen-Farley has tonight announced the 27th season of the professional theatre company at opening night of Bullets Over Broadway The Musical.

"Season 27 promises to be inspiring, fun and even a little scary - all in all a collection of wonderful experiences, including a few surprises. Season 26 has been a great season with some really Wonderful Productions and we couldn't have done it without our patrons and sponsors who have responded so well to what we do," said Producing Artistic Director Allen-Farley. She added, 'We ventured into some uncharted territories this year in both productions and venues and look to do more of the same in Season 27."

Georgia Ensemble Theatre is the artistic home to more than 3,000 season subscribers, as well as dedicated individual ticket buyers, theatre students, artists and educators who frequent the Roswell-based company throughout the year. Georgia Ensemble Theatre has been the Official Resident Professional Theatre Company at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center in historic Roswell since the facility was opened in 1992.
