The Blue Hill Troupe brings high-quality theater performances to New York City audiences while raising money for New York City charities.

The Troupe has raised nearly four million dollars for its charity partners since its founding in 1924. Hailing from all walks of life and spanning several generations, Troupers donate their time and energy to produce two full theatrical productions a year: a Broadway musical or light opera and a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.

The Blue Hill Troupe has twice performed at Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops, and was featured for many years in the Metropolitan Museum of Art concert series. On television, the Troupe has been profiled on CBS Sunday morning and the MetroArts/Thirteen performance series.
