Started in a second floor walkup space that seated 50 in 1985, by Kay and Jim Thigpen, Trustus has evolved to a half of a million dollar enterprise in 22years. The underlying principal of Trustus has always been to bring the best of the newest and original plays, to an audience craving professional theatre in a setting that is comfortable and unique.
Our uniqueness is the comfortable chairs, complimentary popcorn and bar that allows you to pretend you’re really sitting at home in your living rooms while watching thought provoking, entertaining, quality theatre.
Trustus’ year around season is comprised of eight mainstage productions that combine comedy, drama, musicals and a Late Night season of one-acts and sketch comedy at 11:15pm on Fridays. Over the years, we have premiered over 65 shows in the southeast, including: Angels in America, Falsettos, Beirut, Colored Museum, The Boys Next Door, The Sum of Us, The Joy of Going Somewhere Definite, Fires in the Mirror and Boy Gets Girl.
