"This magical story of lustful, youthful, romantic love requires the audience to take an imaginary leap into a bewitching fantasy," says Trombley. "The audience, along with the characters, takes an extraordinary journey of wild twists and turns that carries us along an emotional roller coaster that challenges and transforms our sensibility about the power of love."
Born and raised in Connecticut, Trombley did her graduate work in theatre and dance at Wesleyan University. She has been producing, directing, choreographing and teaching theatre in various universities, performing arts programs, as well as regional and community theatres since the early 1980s. Her last production of 'Will Rogers Follies' was nominated by the San Francisco Bay Area Circle Theatre Critics for awards as Best Director and Best Production in the large Musical Theatre category. She is the founding producer of 'Mountain Days - the John Muir Musical,' an original musical that runs each summer in the Bay area.
