The Gilroy Children’s Musical Theater is dedicated to offering high quality performing arts experiences to young actors ages 5-21 in the Bay Area. Since 1985, GCMT Artistic Director and Founder, John Bisceglie, has directed and choreographed hundreds of community, commercial, and professional productions featuring actors of all ages. For nine years, Bisceglie held the title of Artistic Director for San Jose Parks and Recreation’s Young People’s Theater, and has been serving Gilroy’s Community Services Department in the same capacity for the past nineteen years.
Over 1000 kids from San Jose, Gilroy, Morgan Hill, Hollister, Salinas, San Juan Bautista and San Martin have participated in our colorful and elaborate theater productions.
John Bisceglie and all of us at The Gilroy Children’s Musical Theater inspire kids to activate their individual creative aspirations and instill the motto that “everyone has talent and can succeed” regardless of age, experience and natural ability. We believe in empowering South Valley talent and find it amazing what a little responsibility, teamwork and spotlight can do. You will always see a variety of talents and ages in our productions, from first timers to seasoned veterans. Ultimately, they always exceed our expectations as well as their own and are an inspiration to all who see them perform.
We are passionate about theater and believe it to be as important to a child’s upbringing as reading, writing, and arithmetic. Cast members are encouraged to naturally develop their imagination and self-esteem while building lifelong skills such as creativity, dedication, self-discipline, and cooperation.
Our exciting and convenient 10-week program, with only one rehearsal per week, makes participation in our productions fun and easy for busy South Valley families. Join our email list today! We look forward to keeping you informed about our upcoming auditions and productions!
