True Story Theater was launched in 2001 by Christopher Ellinger. Amber Espar is the current director. Our ensemble of 17 multi-talented performers include actors, dancers, singers and musicians. In our “day jobs” we are counselors, administrators, nonprofit directors, radio producers, scientists, researchers and more. Since six of us perform at any given time, one of the delights of seeing repeated True Story shows is the ever-changing casts and the different talents we bring. Currently we’re holding rolling auditions.
