The Way We Were troupe performs in Trumbull

Mark Sunday, Sept. 21, on your calendars to attend the highly-acclaimed musical The Hye Legion: The Gamavor Story, performed by The Way We Were troupe.

Conceptualized by troupe director and playwright Hourig Papazian-Sahagian, it recounts the true-life stories of the daring rescue missions by Armenian American volunteers (Gamavors) during the Genocide. An alarm had sounded throughout the United States: The Turks were killing survivors and torching villages again. Selfless Gamavor men, Genocide survivors themselves, left the U.S. to return to their homeland and search for and rescue survivors.

This musical play, filled with intrigue, adventure, romance, and song, has delighted many audiences and is now coming to Trumbull, at the Armenian Church of the Holy Ascension, 1460 Huntington Tpke., at noon.

This event, sponsored by The Women’s Guild, starts off with a light luncheon included in the ticket price of $25. Children (17 and under) free. Contact Maureen Najarian 203-288-1946 or e-mail: for information and reservations.
