Goshen Theatre Project NFP was founded in 2014 by a group of educators from the Metro east area. This team of educators was joined by a group of very dedicated parents who desired to expand performance opportunities for their community. GTP was born out of the need for a total arts experience in a world where less emphasis is placed on the fine arts and their importance in shaping well rounded individuals.

The Goshen Theatre Project's mission is to serve the communities of Edwardsville, Troy, Glen Carbon, and other surrounding Metro-East areas by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber, nurturing new talent, and developing youth outreach and arts education programs.

We are a non for profit organization with 501(c)(3) tax status.
