TROUPE, TROUPERS and SUPER TROUPERS:
ACT’s Troupe and Troupers are auditioned repertory groups of outstanding high school (Troupe) and middle school (Troupers) students from throughout the Tri-Cities area. Troupe strives to provide the highest quality in professionalism and performance, and bring a public awareness to sensitive subjects. Past projects include festivals, competitions, educational productions and projects, dinner and dessert theatre. Troupers focus on literature-based works to expand the mind and stretch the imagination, thus allowing for optimal growth and immersion in theatre knowledge, skills, and confidence. Super Troupers is an advanced group of ensemble actors. It is NOT an auditioned group but advances directly from Troupers. Super Troupers work on more advanced projects that often reflect challenges faced by their peers. The age range is 7th -9th grade. At the end of the season, students in 8th or 9th grade are eligible to advance to Troupers at the discretion of the Director.
