When students in the Holy Trinity Performing Arts program enter their junior year, one of their major projects is to present one-act plays that the students produce and direct.
This year, five award-winning one-act plays were presented in the school’s “Music Box Theatre,, which is normally the school’s music room.
While the juniors handle all the backstage production work, the on-stage actors can be any student in the program but selected by the student directors. One-act plays are a great stepping stones for the students, as they experience theatre production on a small scale before having to tackle the major project in the Senior Repertory Theater class, which is the production of a full main-stage play.
All students involved in the Senior Repertory production, backstage and on-stage, are members of the Senior Performing Arts class. This year’s Senior Repertory Theatre production is the Tony award-winning play by American playwright, Mary Zimmerman, “Metamorphoses”.
