"Trinity Repertory Company is a remarkable organization that provides culture, education, and generally enriches the lives our community," said Chairman and CEO Edward O. Handy III. "As they continue to find ways to make their work possible during these challenging times, we are happy to support their virtual 'Your Half Hour Call with Curt' series."

Washington Trust has sponsored Trinity Rep's productions in the past, such as the 2019 production of Little Shop of Horrors; however the coronavirus pandemic forced the temporary closing of Trinity Rep's doors for in-person experiences, including 83 performances of A Tale of Two Cities, Sweat, and Sweeney Todd. The staff pivoted to the creation of online classes and content that is collected under the umbrella of The Show Goes On.
