Kent Trumbull Theatre

Celebrating more than 55 years of community theatre!

The Kent Trumbull Theatre produces many shows 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.

In Kent State Trumbull Theatre’s rich history of community and university theatre, this is the first time in 55 years that our box office has remained closed for nearly an entire theatre and summer stock season. While we are anxious to retake the stage, we are proud to announce that we will be offering a virtual play this spring.

2021/22 Season

November 12-14; 19-21

Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.

March 11-13; 18-20
ROMEO & JULIET by William Shakespeare

This timeless tale of star-crossed lovers will be given fresh new life with an original staging.

April 22-24; 29- May 1

We will be staging the results of our playwriting competition for High School Juniors and Seniors from Trumbull and neighboring counties. Come see fresh new works by exciting young voices from right here in northeast Ohio.

Sips & Scripts

Come enjoy a new play & a pint in a relaxed atmosphere! "Sips & Scripts” supports, promotes, and produces work written by local playwrights through
monthly public readings. All readings are open to the public and hosted by Modern Methods Brewing Company. Performances begin at 7 pm.
