presented by Appalachian State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance
In a world inhabited only by children, “The Trolleys” are a gang of six living just outside the city. They need their light jars to survive — but the lights have started to fade and no one knows why. Savage Kim and her gang head towards the city and the unknown, following a mysterious song. Will they find more light before their jars go out and they become Dusters?
Commissioned in 2015 by the Australian Theatre for Young People, The Trolleys asks the question: “What happens if you inherit a world that isn’t safe?”

ABOUT APPALACHIAN STATE’S DEPARTMENT OF THEATRE & DANCE

Theatre and Dance embraces the university’s mission to provide:
*a well-rounded liberal education and the opportunity to pursue a special field of inquiry
*to promote the intellectual, cultural and personal development of its students
*to serve as a center of cultural and professional activity within its state and region

Additionally, the mission of Theatre and Dance is to provide a liberal arts curriculum for the BA degrees in Dance Studies and Theatre Arts including concentrations in Performance, Design/Technology, Theatre Education and General Theatre. The department offers a Dance Studies-Honors program, minors in theatre or dance, and courses to meet General Education requirements in various perspectives, the fine arts and wellness literacy. The department also values the opportunity to offer coursework for integrated learning through the arts to the overall student population.

Vital to the support of this mission is a dynamic co-curricular production program that provides exemplary theatre and dance experiences to students, the university community and the region. Coursework and the production program emphasize skills that prepare students for professional careers in the arts but are highly transferable to other pursuits.

The departmental philosophy is to support the university’s liberal arts environment through a balanced and integrated emphasis on teaching, creative activity, scholarship and service.
