After celebrating its 50th Anniversary season last summer, The Board of Trustees of the producing organization of the outdoor drama Trumpet in the Land has made the very difficult but necessary decision to cease efforts to produce any shows for the remainder of calendar year 2020. This decision, made to safeguard the health and safety of our cast, crew, staff, volunteers, and audience members, was based upon information provided by the office of the governor of Ohio and the New Philadelphia Health Commissioner. While we very much wish we were in a different position, we have accepted that the current Covid-19 pandemic will prohibit our ability to provide the meaningful and moving experience audiences have come to expect from Trumpet in the Land.

Taking this step is not something that was done lightly, as it will be a major financial hit for our organization; but we hope we can count on donations, grants, and other financial support to maintain basic expenses so we can stage many more seasons of Trumpet in the future.

Until then, stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to Trumpet in the Land in 2021!

Now Celebrating 51st
Anniversary Season

Written by Pulitzer prize-winning playwright Paul Green, Trumpet in the Land is an unforgettable experience that brings to life the Ohio frontier during the Revolutionary War. Performed in the same hills from which this story is born, Trumpet is a thrilling and passionate story of a peaceful people's influence on the war and the tragic events that encircled the founding of Ohio's first settlement, Schoenbrunn.
