About Eden Troupe

Eden Troupe is Patrick Henry College's drama club, a student arts organization. We seek to glorify God through the production of plays that communicate truth and beauty and that engage our culture's values in a meaningful and productive manner, while entertaining our audiences. We believe it is important to maintain the artistic integrity of each play we produce, while upholding our organization’s values. Eden Troupe follows in the grand millennia-old tradition of theatre through the plays we stage each semester. This journey has taken audiences from Mythical Greece to 15th-century England to Depression Era small-town America and back again. Musicals, comedies, dramas and everything in between have lit up Eden Troupe's stage. We hope to give you just a small taste of the wonderful world of theatre, in which Eden Troupe has been honored to play a part.

    Comments

    Folks, it seems like we're going to be hard up for Eden Troupe productions for the foreseeable future. :( I want to mitigate that somewhat. I've begun posting some of the very first (2002-2005) productions to my YouTube channel. One of the early ones is below and more will follow in coming days or weeks. I won't clutter this page with individual postings, but if you're interested, subscribe to the channel and you'll be notified.

    I know most of these have been re-done more recently, but I hope you can enjoy seeing where Eden Troupe started!

    The full list will include:
    2002: As You Like It // Our Town
    2003: The Importance of Being Earnest // Arms and the Man
    2004: Much Ado About Nothing
    2005: An Ideal Husband // Macbeth
    Awesome, Eden Troupe. Want me to post and tag to my friends too?
    Awesome
    Blessings to each of you! Our homeschool group is looking to plan an event in the spring and wondered if Eden Troupe has chosen its script yet. If so, would you be so gracious as to share it with us? We came a number of years ago and were ever so impressed!
    Auditions for Three Musketeers in the multi-purpose room right now til 1pm!
