Kids, Community and Volunteers.
Trumbull Hall Troupe began in 2004 to provide kids with a fun, educational theatre experience that could also contribute to improving the lives of those less fortunate. Trumbull Hall Troupe runs on the efforts of volunteers – friends and family committed to our goals.
Every year an original piece is performed by area teens and net proceeds are donated to various charities. In fact, when you write a check for performances, you actually write your check to the charity, not to Trumbull Hall Troupe. All cash donations are split equally between our current charities. All general admission tickets are free but donations are gladly accepted. And in 2011 we added VIP Passes. These seats are included in the first few rows of the center section and the VIP Pass also includes a show tshirt. VIP Passes are available for a $50 donation.
For 2013 Trumbull Hall Troupe is presenting Underland the story of Alex, a bully who makes fun of an awkward girl’s science project. Clara has a box full of nothing – but she calls it “Underland” – a place full of microscopic creatures we can’t see. After being given detention, Alex falls asleep – only to wake up IN Underland, the size of an ant. There he meets Anthony, the head of the Ant Army; and a rat named Cagney; as well as a host of other miniscule bugs and organisms — all of whom live under the rule of the (drag) Queen Bee – a tyrant who hosts an annual spelling bee, whose winner is granted one wish. Alex realizes that’s his only chance to get back home — but he’s never been a very good student…! The show is full of Ellen Wilber’s amazing songs, and Jodi and Ellen are even going to add a couple of new ones to the mix to make it fresh!
