Trollwood Performing Arts School is a place where the sky’s the limit. There simply is no better youth development program in the arts. Period. The school celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2018. I was an alumni from 1989 to 1994. My shows include:
- The Sound of Music
- Peter Pan
- The Music Man
- Anything Goes
- Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
- Under Milkwood
I also worked as staff in 1995 as main stage Stage Manager for West Side Story and did props for Chocolate. My very first (unofficial) summer at Trollwood was 1983 when my oldest brother was Uncle Henry in The Wizard of Oz, and I hung around the park, and even helped lay a few of the bricks in the upper-right corner of the Oz Yellow Brick Road. There’s a reason my business is named Oz Technology Company GBC.
But enough about my experience at Trollwood. Check out the success alumni of Timm Sharp in Blunt Talk, or Becky Gulsvig in the upcoming tour of Come From Away, or Marc Koeck as Tony in West Side Story at the Guthrie Theatre.
