WHAT IS TRAVELING TROUPE?

The Traveling Troupe is Grand Rapids Civic Theatre’s flagship outreach program that provides local schools & community venues the opportunity to have theatre travel to them!  Now in its 28th year, the Traveling Troupe has played to almost 200,000 children and adults – always completely free of charge.  Traveling Troupe brings everything with them – scenery, sound equipment, costumes, props, actors & crew!

 

Traveling Troupe performs at schools on Tuesday mornings at 10am from the beginning of March through late May.  There are also 3-5 community performances on Saturdays or Tuesday evenings – times/locations are currently TBA.  The production lasts approximately 50 minutes, with a 5-10 minute Q&A after the performance. 

 

Rehearsals are generally less than a regular Mainstage at Civic Theatre – please see the conflict calendar below for ALL of the potential rehearsal dates/times.  Depending on cast conflicts, rehearsals will likely be 2-3 days/week from mid-January until the first week of March.

 

PLEASE CHECK THE PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE CAREFULLY TO BE SURE YOU ARE AVAILABLE ON ALL OF THE PERFORMANCE DATES!
