Theatrical brilliance from Trinity College at Henty

A taste of theatrical brilliance from Trinity Anglican College will be on the sound stage at Henty.

The Trinity Anglican College drama groups gather performance experience in a myriad of places, including the Henty Machinery Field Days.

Keep an eye out for them at the Farm Gate Market this year on Wednesday, September 18 at 1.30pm.

Trinity Anglican College is renown for its depth and breadth in the field of Performing Arts.

It has a strong music program, established drama expertise and a reputation for pushing the boundaries of musical theatre.

Even more impressive is its reputation for delivering well beyond expectations on ambitious programs.

In performing The Phantom of the Opera this year, the College became the first organisation on the Border and one of the first schools in Australia to attempt the iconic musical.

It demanded unprecedented singing expertise and challenged students to explore deeply not only their performance skills but their mindset, too.

It opened to acclaim and was wildly popular at each of its four performances.

More than 70 students helped bring The Phantom to life. Many were on stage, but others were alongside professional musicians in the pit giving life to the complex score and still others managed the lighting and backstage tasks.

A production is the highlight on the College calendar but smaller groups work tirelessly all year to hone their skills.

The junior and senior choirs unearth new voices; while rock bands, jazz ensembles and the stage band perform at Eisteddfods, performance nights and assemblies.
