Trueblood Performing Arts Center Short Film Contest 2021
Introduction: We are inaugurating a short film contest this Winter in which everyone on the Island can participate. It is our hope that we can make this an annual event. We would love to see as many people as possible make a 2-3-minute film using a smart phone about anything that has to do with the Island. It can be funny, about life during the pandemic, your family, pets, friends, school, ferry, hobby, etc. The film is to be made by an individual or team and filmed on the Island or within 4 1/2 miles of Washington Island.
Purpose; To engage the creativity of Islanders. These short films will be posted so that anyone with an internet connection and a smart phone, tablet, computer can watch them

The TPAC announces a new music CD!
The new music compilation CD, Hold The Boat, Vol. One, is now available for purchase! This wonderful compilation is comprised of 13 original songs, each written and sung by an Island or Island-connected artist and whose use was donated to this project. The CD has been getting rave reviews and we are very proud to showcase this Island talent!

Thank You for joining us this past summer if you were some of the fine folks that relaxed on our front lawn and listened to our musical shows!
It was a crazy, unsettling year but we made the best of it with 9 shows outside on the front lawn of the Theater where folks could socially distance, have a picnic, and enjoy the outdoors while listening to quality music. We are hoping this coming season will let us move back inside but we will still have shows outside in the beautiful summer weather. No matter what, we will be here and will do it safely!
By the way, just below this, you will find some of the wonderful events and shows we sadly had to cancel in 2020. Hopefully, we can reschedule them for someday in the future.
