Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET) provides first class theatre productions and educational opportunities on a year-round basis and is the resident professional theatre at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. The Theatre has earned a reputation for the quality and diversity of its plays.
Since its first production of Kaufman and Hart’s You Can’t Take It With You in 1993, GET has produced 20 regular seasons of plays and musicals with 133 productions on the main stage at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center and on tour to elementary and middle schools throughout Georgia. Notable productions have included a world premiere of The Invisible Man by Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee, commissioned by the Theatre. Our Southeastern premiere of The Living was the kickoff event for AIDS Awareness Month in the Atlanta metro area in ’97. Having Our Say was part of our cross-cultural promotion with downtown’s Seven Stages and Jomandi Theatres. In the 1999-2000 season, GET’s ambitious The Lion in Winter, directed by world-renowned Russian actor and director Eugene Lazarev, marked great strides for the Theatre both technically and artistically. In 2009, the Suzi Award-winning Buddy: The Buddy Holly Story became GET’s most popular show and was followed by a remount at the 14th Street Playhouse in midtown the following year. In recent years, GET has produced the world premieres of Swell Party and Tokens of Affection, both by Topher Payne, and commissioned Payne’s The Only Light in Reno for the 21st season.
