WonderQuest: GTA for Young Audiences
WonderQuest is Gainesville Theatre Alliance's (GTA) Theatre for Young Audiences.
WonderQuest is the only organization in North Georgia dedicated to offering professionally-produced theatre specifically for children and their families. WonderQuest is dedicated to lighting the fire of the mind.
There are ideas and feelings that theatre creates for children that no other medium can. Not TV or video or computer -- no matter how interactive -- it isn't alive. And when we combine that unique live element with literature -- when we lift the story from the page to the stage -- we empower children to find the same excitement in books... and in ideas. We have to kindle the fire.
Each production is performed in the historic Brenau University opera house, Pearce Auditorium, for family audiences and over 7,000 students from schools throughout northeast Georgia.
Gay Hammond is the Director for WonderQuest.
