'The Show Must Go On'

In the words of Singin' in the Rain's Cosmo Brown, "The show must go on! Come rain, come shine, come snow, come sleet! The show must go on!" Even though the Mainstage Musical is postponed a year, the Singin' in the Rain crew is still hard at work preparing for Summer 2023!

Singin' in the Rain Set Sneak Peek

The technical crew is hard at work getting ahead on the set build for 2023's Singin' in the Rain. The set will feature multiple turntables including turntables stacked on top of turntables. The turntable they were working on this week features 204 casters and it isn't even the largest one. Check out the photos of part of the set below!

Volunteer Opportunities

Trollwood Performing Arts School offers rewarding volunteer opportunities working with positive and fun people to benefit a great cause! There’s a place for everyone at Trollwood! You can volunteer in any area that interests you and no experience is required. We’d love for YOU to join the Trollwood volunteer force. Without our dedicated volunteers, Trollwood would not be able to have such a positive impact on the youth of our region.


We are seeking volunteers to help with costume alterations and ushers for Totally Trollwood Musical, Trollwood Children's Theatre, and Trollwood Players in July and early August.


You may sign up for volunteer opportunities by emailing Programming Assistant Macy Scharmer at scharmm@fargo.k12.nd.us or Program Coordinator Nancy Glaser at glasern@fargo.k12.nd.us.
