We’ve waited long enough! The Boomer Troupe is back — virtually this time — to present another original production.
Through personal narrative and engaging music, The Boomer Troupe's intrepid cast tackles the challenges of 2020. How incredibly adaptive the human spirit is!

The (fully vaccinated) cast offers up a spirited message that celebrates what they, like so many others, have learned from this historical experience. You’ll laugh, you may cry, and, based on previous Boomer Troupe shows, you might even ﬁnd yourself singing along!

Sun., June 6, 2 p.m.
Tickets are only $10 for this livestream performance on YouTube!

Previous Boomer Troupe productions
2019: Festivals, Feasts, & Fun... Throughout the Year
Whatever the holiday, it’s always a sweet crescendo of sensory experiences! A song unleashes a cascade of memories; the smell of apple pie transports us to another time and place; the sight of the first daffodils conjures up a scene from the past; the touch of velvet reminds us of a favorite holiday; and a sip of cool lemonade carries us back to beloved celebrations.
The Boomer Troupe offered a sensational show of holiday songs and stories that remind us of our most treasured traditions.
2018: The Music of Our Lives
Throughout a lifetime, music touches our lives in countless ways … a sweet melody can bring back stirring memories, a simple tune can soothe or energize, a pounding composition can unite or divide.
Weaving together music, songs, and stories, The Boomer Troupe celebrated the never-ending power and magic of music in three shows at the Eureka Woman's Club in Eureka.
2017: Those Sizzling Sixties
"Those Sizzling Sixties" was a musical retrospective of one of America's most transformational decades.
This talented ensemble of performers presented a lively living history, full of far out stories, and of course, groovy music from an unforgettable decade.
"Those Sizzling Sixties" benefitted two community educational programs, Humboldt Light Opera Company and OLLI at HSU.
2016: Those Fascinating Fifties
In 2016, the Boomer Troupe offered an entertaining look at life in the 1950s. Through captivating stories and memory-making songs, this remarkable and influential decade was commemorated by some of our community's best "boomer" performers.
