Stargate Theatre Company at GOSO

GOSO Partners with Stargate Theatre Company for GOSOArts

The Stargate Theatre Company is a program housed within Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) in New York. Stargate is focused on “giving voice” to youth who are facing the challenges of poverty, trauma, and involvement in the criminal justice system. During the summer season, their full-time program offers paid positions to these young people, to come and learn how to write, direct, and act in their own stage productions. This not only leads to expanded creativity, but also to improved self-confidence, communication, and critical thinking, and helps develop workforce-readiness.
