The Traveling Troupe is a Grand Rapids Civic Theatre outreach program offering local schools and community venues the opportunity to have live theatre travel to them! Now in its 27th year, the Traveling Troupe has produced a different show each year, and has played to more than 160,000 children and adults – always completely free of charge. Traveling Troupe brings in all the sets, sound equipment, costumes, props, crews, and actors…we just need an audience!
