About Inspiration

Our Mission

Inspiration Performing Troupe is a traveling performing arts troupe based out of Norfolk Massachusetts, started by Emily Garven in December of 2009. The mission of the group is to use the talents of local children to give back to the community and to give them a professional and exciting performing experience close to home. They are taught skills that help them in their singing, dancing, and acting careers as well as given an opportunity to "inspire" others with their talents and love of performing.

Our Show

Our show is 45 minutes long and consists of all sorts of musical genres including Pop, Broadway, and Classic Rock. Solos, duets, group numbers and all cast numbers are all a part of our high energy, high talent show! Each season Inspiration has a "travel performance." Past seasons have included NYC, Cape Cod, Disney World, and Norwegian Cruise Lines! Information for the 2017 travel performance and a listing of the local performance schedule will be released in January of 2017!

Our Cast

Our cast is made up of boys and girls ages 12-18 from all over Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We have had over 60 kids come through the program in the last 5 years and hope to continue to keep getting new faces every season. All cast members are handpicked through an audition process; chosen for exemplary skills in singing, dancing, and acting.

"Inspiration JR."

"Inspiration JR" is a 10 week program new for the spring of 2017! This workshop is geared for children ages 6-11 who would like to learn more about theater and performing. In this workshop they will be taught basic theater terminology and skills to improve their acting, singing, and dancing. They will also learn audition techniques, play theater and improv games, and learn and perfect three musical numbers to open up a live "Inspiration Performing Troupe" local show. No auditions necessary, we want to open up this experience to all eager performers regardless of prior performing experience. To inquire information about this program please go to the "Inspiration Jr." page!

Giving Back

We aim to instill strong values in our performers. Inspiration participates in many community events and community service projects. We have performed at many fundraisers, memorial services, and funerals. Every season we perform at nursing homes and hospitals. We take every opportunity we can to give back to the community who have helped us get to where we are today.
