About Trinity’s Theater Program

In addition to a well-rounded theatre arts curriculum, Trinity proudly presents two main stage productions -a fall musical and a spring play- and a festival of “one- acts” each year. Students are encouraged to audition for acting roles as well as provide technical support in the areas of lighting, sound, costume, make- up, publicity, house management, set construction and stage management. All productions are run by Trinity students and the drama director.

Each production that a student is involved in provides opportunities to earn points toward joining The International Thespian Honor Society. When a student of sophomore status earns 10 points (or 100 hours of time devoted to the theatre department), she has gained the opportunity to become a Thespian.

All Trinity students are invited and encouraged to attend the Illinois High School Theatre Festival in January each year.  Students also bring theatre arts to the local community by completing service projects throughout the year, and plan numerous cast and crew bonding activities, including the annual Hammy Awards.

A wide variety of theatre courses including Introduction to Drama, Theatre Stagecraft, Basic Acting, Acting for musical theatre and camera, Improvisational Theatre, and Theatre and Leadership prepare students for theatre opportunities outside of Trinity, as well as university level auditions for those pursuing careers in theatre arts.



Aida
the Musical November 17, 18, and 19, 2017

The Trinity High School and Performing Arts Department is proud to present AIDA by Elton John and Tim Rice. The performances will be Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 17-19 in the Trinity auditorium.

Adapted from the four-time Tony Award-winning hit, Elton John and Tim Rice’s Aida School Edition is an epic tale of love, loyalty, and betrayal, chronicling the love triangle between Aida, a Nubian princess stolen from her country, Amneris, an Egyptian princess, and Radames, the soldier that they both love. There are action packed scenes as well as incredible music.  The show also features a runway dancing fashion show.  

 AIDA is more than just a love story.  Amneris and Aida are both powerful female future rulers who learn to transcend the vast cultural differences between their warring nations, heralding a time of unprecedented peace and prosperity.

 An unforgettable score that features soaring ballads, rousing choral numbers, and amazing choreography. 

Online ticket information coming soon.
