You Got Trumped! is a political satire that is a hilarious look at a middle school class presidential debate. Meet candidates and students of Barack Obama Elementary School, Becky Smalls and Zachary Thackary as they debate relevant ( or irrelevant) topics such as vaccinations, cooties, and a wall surrounding the school. The cast features Jenna Iacono ( The Grinch) as Becky Smalls, Matthew Quirk ( Before Your Very Eyes) as Zachary Thackary, Joseph Michael Orlando as Principal Tingle, Maddox Elliot ( Dream Street) as Timmy, and Ellie Poon ( A Christmas Story).
The playwright, Matthew Hill, is currently the Theatre Master at Manhattan Repertory Theatre. After graduating from SUNY Purchase College in 2009, Matt started to work primarily in house management at a number of different theatres, such as the Penguin Repertory Theatre in Stony Point, New York and at the Cultural Arts Center at SUNY Rockland Community College in Suffern, New York. As a writer, Matthew has also worked at Manhattan Repertory Theatre this past year with his show, "Tales from Front House" about all the crazy house management stories that happened over the years.
