Marcia J. Trimble New Works Project

marciapic“I’ve always felt that stories are the tools of a child’s life,” says Marcia Trimble.  “Though there’s nothing better than classics like Peter Pan, we need new stories, modern stories that today’s youth can relate to. The social issues that today’s youth face need a voice on stage – to help empower the next generation through the arts.” – Marcia Trimble
