Charles Troy’s multimedia presentations tell the backgrounds of the greatest musicals and Broadway songwriters of the 20th century, in visually seamless programs with original graphics, scanned photos, edited audio tracks with the lyrics displayed onscreen, and historic video clips, coordinated with thoroughly researched, scripted narratives that weave the pertinent events into cohesive, dramatic stories.
Troy is a graphic designer and former theatre lyricist based in Chicago. His multimedia presentations merge his skills and his passion for the subject. Over the last ten years, he has developed more than 50 presentations.
He has built up a large and enthusiastic following in Chicago and in Florida. This will be his seventh consecutive year presenting at the Cole Porter Festival.
