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.  This year’s show is The Best of Sketch Comedy II and will be written and directed by Scott McClure.  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!
