Troy Civic Theatre is not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and advance theatre arts through quality entertainment and education for the cultural enrichment of the Capital District.
Originally envisaged by Scott Truesdell-Liebig, Troy Civic Theatre was founded around his dining-room table in September 2011. Over the course of a few months, the company's founding members gathered together and eclectic group of talented theatre professionals to form a Board of Directors capable of furthering Troy Civic Theatre's aims.
“Twelfth Night” is often described as Shakespeare’s most sophisticated comedy. His themes of unrequited love and mistaken identity are repeated. Likewise with the characters encountered: a lovelorn male, an all-knowing fool and a feisty female (or two). Yet in “Twelfth Night”, these themes and characters come together in a most magical way in telling the story of Viola, a young women shipwrecked in the country of Illyria, who makes her way in the new land dressed as a man. She comes to serve the lovesick Orsino in his courtship of mourning Lady Olivia. Olivia instead is captivated by the youthful messenger. Along the way, we meet a cast of riotous relatives and court characters as well as the officious steward, Malvolio, and so the hijinks, mystery and love begins.

Troy Civic Theatre: Bringing Classics to the Capital Region
Troy Civic Theatre Company, Metroland's “Best New Community Theater of 2012”, is seeking support for its Summer 2013 production of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.
The inaugural play for TCT's proposed Classics in the Park program, Twelfth Night will be presented during Troy Night Out on June 28 in the recently renovated Riverside Park. A joint program sponsored by the City of Troy, Twelfth Night is being presented to provide the residents of Troy a no-cost opportunity to see one of William Shakespeare's seminal pieces, and to see the work that TCT has been doing over the course of two TANYS award-winning seasons.
All donations will directly support the performance, allowing for the construction of the set, period-specific costuming, props, and the maintenance costs of the rehearsal and performance process. All funds raised will go back to support the theatrical arts, and ensure that TCT can present further opportunities like Twelfth Night in future seasons.
