Kent Trumbull Theatre

Celebrating more than 50 years of community theatre!

The Kent Trumbull Theatre produces many show and performances that generate rave reviews from local critics as well as the general public. The shows are usually performed by theatre students, but sometimes include outside talent as the theatre presents three productions annually throughout the university season (September-May) and three more as part of the Summer Stock program (May-August), which includes an active youth theatre component. Students can complete their Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Studies at Kent State Trumbull.


Dead Man’s Cell Phone
Nov. 22, 23 &, 24
Dec. 6, 7, & 8

An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man – with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by MacArthur “Genius” Grant recipient and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl. A work about how we memorialize the dead – and how that remembering changes us – it is the odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.
