Hey. Hey you. Pssst. You're probably here cuz you're in on the secret. By now, you're already familiar with HGT's kickass brand of bold, powerful, locally-raised theatre sprouting up in Boise. So you already know what kind of cool shit HGT's capable of. You're probably here cuz you're thirsty for more, and want to lend a hand in helping it happen. You came to the right place, my friend.
Together we work with talented teams of performers and production crew to write scripts, craft puppets, and produce locally crafted plays. Days are spent designing props and puppets, including elaborate shadow puppets in a garage/workspace, and nights rehearsing in the basement of the Gem Center for the Arts. Our mission is to serve an audience of peers, a group that seems to have fallen between the cracks when it comes to performing arts. HomeGrown rises to the challenge by bringing the show to bars and alternative venues, drawing a crowd who comes for the beer and laughs, but stays for the smart, real storytelling. We are known for our annual Horrific Puppet Affair, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Orlando, DIRT, Every Man Shift (For All the Rest), and others.
HGT's mission is to never have to turn anyone away, which means we make productions that the brokest of hipsters can afford to turn up for. Inexpensive theatre means more cash in your pocket which means more drinks in your belly! If you haven't been to one of HGT's plays, I'm going to let you in on the secret; it's totally worth it. It's the kinda thing that doesn't exist in Boise. If you have seen it, you're probably at this page to support our cause and become a member, because you already know how it's totally fucking worth it.
