NEW, Season 32 Ticket!



 We are proud to announce its Season 32 line up including The Rocky Horror Show, the long awaited Marcus, or the Secret of Sweet, the third play in the Brother/Sister trilogy and a Trustus favorite, The Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical among many others beginning in September.


This season, we’re offering the public a chance to become a Season 32 Ticket Holder to guarantee an incredible season of theatre and the first pick of seats for each show. As a Season 32 Ticket Holder, six shows are included for the price of $160 and each seasonal show is discounted for Ticket Holders. To get the most out of your Midland’s art entertainment, becoming a Season 32 ticket holder at Trustus Theatre is a must.


The Rocky Horror Show, written by Richard O’Brien, returns to the Trustus Main Stage as the first show of Season 32. Brad Majors and Janet Weiss are deeply in love and become affianced. What follows next is a “strange journey” as the couple finds themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank N Furter, a “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania” that invites them up to his lab. The doctor unveils his new creation and madcap chaos ensues.


Playwright of Marcus, or the Secret of Sweet, Tarell Alvin McCraney, sets the stage days before Hurricane Katrina strikes the projects of Louisiana. The currents of Marcus’s life converge, overflowing into his close-knit community and launching the search for his sexual and personal identity on a cultural landscape infused with mysterious family creeds. The provocative, poignant, and fiercely humorous coming-of-age story of a young gay man in the South, Marcus is the stirring conclusion of The Brother/Sister Plays.


During the Christmas season, the lovely inhabitants of Armadillo Acres (North Florida’s premier mobile-living community), will be coming back to the Trustus stage by popular demand! Everyone will be filled with warmth and beer, but when a freak bout of amnesia strikes the trailer park Scrooge, neighborly love is put to the test. You’ll laugh out loud as our trailer-park storytellers Betty, Lin, and Pickles jingle all the way to tell you the story of the wildest Christmas ever in the trailer park! This companion to the original Great American Trailer Park Musical is just as much of a cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ good time – but with tinsel and Keg Nog.


The entire Season 32 line up includes, The Rocky Horror Show, Marcus, or the Secret of Sweet, Grey Gardens, Hand to God, Rock of Ages, the Playwrights’ Festival Winner’s Play and season specials such as the Great American Trailer Park Christmas Musical, Tail! Spin!, Mark Rapp’s Jingle Bell Jazz, Boy, and Sex on a Sunday.


Tickets will be available at the Trustus box office or online at Box office hours are Wednesday-Friday from 2-6 pm. For more information and updates on each upcoming production, visit,, or call 803.254.9732.

Making Noise in Columbia!

American Idiot is making a lot of noise here in Columbia – literally. We’ve had a wild season of auditions, rehearsals, opening night and continued performances that have continuously rocked the main stage. In addition to the easily recognizable Green Day musical hits, American Idiot draws a lot of power from telling a human story. We’d love for you to join us as we find connection and belonging in a culture that seems to become more disconnected and out of touch with humanity. Read it for yourself in the most recent reviews that are buzzing around the Columbia streets:

“Indeed, while Green Day and American Idiot’s name recognition should certainly help bring the crowds, Ibrahim’s confidence comes as much from her company’s willingness to take risks — and the artists’ commitment to making sure that those reaches are consistently worthwhile”. – More from Free Times here:
“With over 20 screens, a projector, four video feeds, LED light strips and a confetti feature, audiences can expect a new experience on the Trustus stage.” via The State Newspaper here:
American Idiot musical shakes up traditional theatre.” See more from  The Daily Gamecock here:
“In those moments, I was often surprised by how well most of the songs translated so deftly to the stage, even for folks who aren’t necessarily fans of the band and familiar with the album, thanks to how electrifying it is to see them brought to life.” More from Jasper Magazine – The Word on Columbia Arts here:
“[American Idiot] undeniably rocks out at full throttle… It would be hard to find a better way to spend an hour and 40 minutes as part of a fun night out in the Vista.” – see more here:


You have a limited chance to see what Columbia critics are raving about. We can’t wait to see you in the audience as we rock the stage and create topics you’ll be discussing long after you leave our theatre. Without our audience, we wouldn’t be able to bring this two time Tony Award-winning production to town. For more information on American Idiotvisit or call 803.254.9732.
