UTA’s Maverick Theatre Company presents TROUPERS: A MUSICAL VAUDEVILLE

TROUPERS takes you back to New York City and the time of Vaudeville – the stirring of America’s melting pot, the beginnings of “show business,” and the new sounds of Ragtime. Based on the actual stories, acts, and music of Vaudeville’s performers, you’ll experience a day in the life of some of the hardest working people in show business – the “Troupers”!

TROUPERS runs October 12 – 16th, 2016 and will be presented in the UT Arlington Mainstage Theatre (Fine Arts Building, North Section) located at 502 South Cooper Street on the UT Arlington campus. Performances of TROUPERS are October 12, 13, 14, and 15 at 8pm and October 16 at 2:30 pm, 2016. Tickets are $12 for general public and $10 for students/senior citizens/UTA faculty & staff.
