The Trumbull Hall Troupe began 7 years ago to provide kids with a fun, educational theatre experience that could also contribute to improving the lives of those less fortunate. Every year an original piece is performed by area teens. All general admission tickets are by donation and net proceeds are forwarded to area non-profits.
This year’s performance is Playtime!, an original piece written for the Trumbull Hall Troupe and performed by talented local teens! It is about a corporate executive who – after buying a toy shop so she can tear it down to build a parking lot – wakes up to find herself the size of a toy, and desperate to find her way back home before the demolition occurs. Along the way she meets some unforgettable characters: including Queen Frostine from Candyland, a stuffed puppy that longs to be real, Barbie & Ken, Bratz dolls, a Jose in the Box, green army men, a Betsy-Wetsy doll, a ballerina in a jewelry box and the toy soldier who loves her from afar, Raggedy Ann – a snarky villainess who has somehow lost her heart – and many more.
All proceeds will go to charity. This year’s donations will go to the Zienzele Foundation, The Haven, David’s House, COVER, and American Red Cross VT/NH. Reserve now – seats are filling up.
