The Trolleri Players present: The Tomte & the Troll
Come, experience the Trolleri (means Magic in Swedish) Players as they bring “The Tomte and the Troll” to life, Monday, October 1 at the Roseau City Center.
Tomtes and Trolls are as old as the dawn of Scandinavia… and are sworn, enemies. So how is it possible that a Tomte and a Troll become friends? Hear the stories, straight from the fairytale characters themselves. Josette Antomarchi and David Braddock will take you back to ancient beliefs of Scandinavia on a charming and enchanted adventure.
For over 15 years, David, Rose Arrowsmith DeCoux, and now Josette have worked their high-energy, interactive brand of magic at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, The Hjemkomst festival of Fargo/Moorhead & The Norsk Høstfest of Minot (the largest Scandinavian Festival in the U.S.) as well as countless schools in Minnesota and North Dakota.
David Braddock has over 40 years experience creating, developing, directing and performing seasonal, ethnic, acclaimed and special characters. David’s primary training is in the Art of Mime and Theatrical Stage Movement, having studied with Marcel Marceau, Margolis Brown and other Movement Arts teachers and schools.
Josette Antomarchi, a French native joined the Trolleri Players in 2011. She started her career touring Europe as a professional actress. Josette then came to the States as a founding member of Theatre de la Jeune Lune. Since that time, Josette has been active with many theater companies, storytelling leagues, and as a co-creator and host of TV shows for the Children’s Hospitals of Minneapolis & St. Paul.
