Palmer Trinity Theatre offers students a rigorous and professional theatre experience in a caring and supportive environment where students feel safe to explore and take risks. A variety of courses are offered allowing students to study acting, musical theatre, playwriting, directing, design, and technical theatre. The emphasis is on individual growth, process-oriented work, and the ensemble approach to theatre. Collaborative ensemble work is frequently showcased. Students sharpen their craft through acting technique, movement, and voice classes on increasingly challenging levels. Play selection from Modern American to Classical give students the knowledge to appreciate a diverse repertoire of theatre and to understand the history of theatre arts. Students have the opportunity to participate in theatrical field trips to local and New York Theatres. Visiting master artists will educate our theatre students on state of the art techniques and innovative theatrical concepts. Affiliated with the International Thespian Society, our Upper School Palmer Trinity Troupe 5458 and Junior Troupe 88939 present three full-length productions a year. School-wide auditions are held for each show and performances are held on campus and at local theaters.
