WILTON, Conn. -- Jim Cooper, of Wilton, will take the stage as The Notary when Troupers Light Opera performs "The Sorcerer" in the Norwalk Concert Hall.

Performances will be at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays April 16 and 23 at the Norwalk Concert Hall, 125 East Ave., Norwalk.

Cooper has been with Troupers for 15 years and currently serves as its treasurer. Since 2001, he also has been the company’s webmaster and has served for many years as its technical director, plus one term as its president.

Starting out in 1946 as an informal group that put on Gilbert and Sullivan operas in private homes, Troupers Light Opera had by 1950 become so popular it recruited members of the Norwalk Symphony for the orchestra and began building sets for the performances. Today, Troupers is a large enterprise, performing with a live orchestra, costumes and complete stage sets. Talented performers from throughout the tri-state area audition for roles, and Troupers welcomes new members each year.

This year, Troupers is under the professional stage and musical direction of Dan Montez and Jun Nakabayashi with full orchestra, period costumes and professional set design.
