The Troublemakers

The Troublemakers is the advanced, second year, level of Make Trouble, for veterans of our training who have previously trained, lived, worked, and made theater together as an ensemble with us. We worked with this awesome ensemble of artists in the summer of 2015 when Colleen, Amanda and Thadd were leading the Shakespeare Academy at Stratford--directing them in Henry V and Twelfth Night, training and teaching them in ensemble theater, physical dramaturgy, and Shakespeare; creating a fierce ensemble. They found each other again here at Make Trouble. They continued their training and rehearsing for Pericles when they finally reunited in Staunton, VA in July 2016. 

It was our privilege to facilitate this reuniting, keeping the ensembles we work with together, nurturing their esprit de corps, and supporting their artistic endeavors long after we leave each other.  It's a model we hope to continue with our future ensembles. The inaugural Troublemakers Ensemble—the inspiring force behind Make Trouble's creation.
