SLO NEW TIMES COVER STORY MAY 2018

"Since actor Toby Tropper (recently seen in The Producers at the San Luis Obispo Repertory Theatre) graduated from PCPA five years ago, the longest he's been between roles (aka, work) has been about a month, and the majority of his acting jobs have come from the Great American Melodrama in Oceano, the SLO Repertory Theatre (formerly SLO Little Theatre), and the Rubicon Theatre Company in Ventura, where Tropper is from." CLICK TO READ FULL ARTICLE

"From being a sultry, all-knowing cross-dressing club host in wartime Berlin in Cabaret to becoming a panic attack prone accountant-turned-Broadway schemer in The Producers, Tropper brings a certain level of sincerity and vulnerability to the roles he takes on."

- Ryah Cooley, SLO New Times 

"Tropper dives into his characters with vigor, for instance, as the mutton-chopped, villainous ancestor. He’s charming as the Baskerville heir, giving him an amiable, country cousin presence, and he offers a comical rendering of servile nosiness as the maid Daisy." - Patricia Harrelson, Sierra Lodestar

- Maren Scriven, UtahTheatreBloggers.com


"Toby Tropper spends most of the show in drag as Molly’s amorous nanny Mrs. Bumbrake, then dives into another gender-bending role as a mermaid. You have to see that to believe it; Tropper’s antics alone are worth the price of admission."

- Charlie Schill, The Herald Journal Logan
