What is Stage Troupers?
Stage Troupers is a group of actors ranging from elementary through high school age boys and girls who, during summer break, perform one act musicals throughout the Tri-County area.
Though the summer Troupers perform a 30 minute musical at local fairs, markets, assisted living facilities, civic gatherings and summer day camps. The Troupers receive more invitations than we can accept each summer!
Members of Troupers realize the big commitment they are making, accept the challenge of hard work and feel it is an honor to be in this group because they get to spread wonderful entertaining messages all over Washington County. They not only represent the cast, but STAGES Performing Arts Youth Academy, their families, other young people and of course themselves.
