Welcome to Elmhurst, population 42,786...visit the art museum, go to the symphony, take a class at the college, see a children's play, sample the many fine restaurants, take in a play at the community theatre.
"What community theatre?"
That was the question that Jill Perez and Carole Thorpe asked. The answer? Start a new theatre for the Elmhurst Community.
Working with director David Soria, they formed GreenMan Theatre Troupe in 2003 to offer opportunities to particpate in plays, see live theatre and enrich the community. GMTT was incorporated in June of 2004 and currently provides a three-show season at the United Methodist Church in Elmhurst. The theatre hopes to offer classes and workshops in theatre arts in the very near future.
