Trollwood Players is a non-musical, summer theater opportunity for students. Each summer the Trollwood Players performs a collection of short plays/sketches to give each student in the program the opportunity to perform both large and ensemble roles. The goal of the Trollwood Players is to get to work with new people, to hone your acting and performance skills, and to have fun!  This summer’s performance is “The Best of Trollwood Sketch Comedy“.  Over the last 6 years, Trollwood Sketch Comedy students have written over 20 hilarious sketches during the summer.  These have only been showcased at Sun Celebration or Student Share Day.  This year the Trollwood Players, led by director Scott McClure, are excited to bring these student created projects to the stage for their largest audience yet!
