GHS PRESENTS - EMMA
The Galion High School Performing Arts Department is returning to GCT once again to stage their spring musical, and this one has been years in the making! "Emma" was originally planned to be performed in 2020, but that year had other plans. Now, students who were going to perform this fun, pop musical as freshman, are celebrating their senior spring musical!
"Emma" is a musical based on Jane Austin's novel of the same name performed as a modernized rom-com. A carefree woman, Emma Woodhouse has "the very best blessings of existence" with "very little to vex or distress me." She is also a self-proclaimed matchmaker who thinks too highly of her abilities. When her attempts at matchmaking and romance go awry, Emma has to face herself and the people she has hurt.
Performances will be on Friday, March 31st 7:00 PM, Saturday, April 1st at 7:00 PM. and Sunday, April 2nd at 2:00 PM. Tickets will be available at the door on the day of each performance.
The cast includes: Ruth Ebner as Emma Woodhouse; Gail Sparks as Harriet Smith; Ben Rinehart as Rinehart; Logan Estep as Frankie Churchill; Lily Ebner as Jane Fairfax; Zach Penwell as Philip Elton; Spencer Gibbs as Martin; Allyssa Woodmansee as Ashley; Julia Connor as Miss Bates; Lincoln Pierce as Mr. Weston; Jae Rhodes as Miss Taylor; Luke Tinnermeier as Mr. Woodhouse; Ashley Soba, Claudia Volz, and Brooklyn Penwell as Welcome Committee Singers; Maria Wegesin, Lila Pierce, Shaylyn Hipsher, Kylie Wegesin, Ellie Rinehart, Landin Bateman, and Asher Welch as Highbury Prep Students.

Sondheim Tribute Revue
Something familiar! Something peculiar!
Galion Community Theatre is extremely pleased to bring a "Sondheim Tribute Revue" to the stage with a wonderfully talented cast, many of whom are new to the Galion stage. In 2021, the theater world lost an absolute legend when composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim passed away at the age of 91. Mr. Sondheim, who began his career in the 1950’s and continued right up until his death, wrote 19 musicals, many of which are considered classics. Those he wrote music and/or lyrics for include, Gypsy, West Side Story, Company, Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and many more. Over the course of his career, Mr. Sondheim was also honored with many major awards, including 8 Tony Awards for his work in the theater, an Academy Award for his song “Sooner or Later” from the movie “Dick Tracy, multiple Grammy Awards for his shows cast recordings and multiple Laurence Olivier awards, which are the British equivalent of the Tony’s.
This production pays tribute to a great composer and lyricist and will feature the talented voices of Sheldon Markel, Niko Carter, Benjamin Lowery, Mary Frankenfield, Katherine Clapp and Samantha Woodill with music and creative direction by Benjamin Lowery.
