True Story Theater was launched in 2001 by director Christopher Ellinger. Our ensemble of 23 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. We hold auditions once or twice a year.
