Theatrical troupe

Theatrical troupe (French: troupe) is a group of performers working in a theatre company or repertory theatre – originally they often toured.[1][2] Troupes are frequently organized by theatre practitioners (e.g. Bertolt Brecht's Berliner Ensemble or Tadeusz Kantor's Cricot 2). The membership can be divided into permanent or temporary as, for example, in the Comédie-Française (French: sociétaires and pensionnaires).[3]
