What Students & Parents are Saying

"Acting created a place for me to express myself and to feel like people are listening — and being at Traveling Players made me feel as if I was worth listening to. It’s a wonderful feeling"
— Student
"300 people auditioned. 22 people were cast. My son, who was a Traveling Players student for many years, will make his Muhlenberg Mainstage debut this November in the Greek tragedy ‘Agamemnon.’ He is one of only a very few freshmen to be cast in any of the school’s Mainstage productions."
— Parent
