The purpose of the Tri-Cities Prep Theater Arts Program is to play its part in the overall mission of Catholic education at Tri-Cities Prep. Our goal is to provide students with an opportunity to achieve a thorough immersion in all aspects of theater, including singing and dance. It also seeks to prepare students for college auditions through real experiences on and behind the stage and to establish competency in voice, diction, movement, improvisation, scene work, audition techniques, production work and stage craft. Our specialty is our Shakespeare program, which is now in it’s 10th performance season.
Tri-Cities Prep believes that to learn is to discover and grow in the truth about reality. Because of this, it is our goal to foster productions which engage the students in dialogue through art which aim at broadening both cultural perspectives and divine wisdom. Our courses in Performing Arts/Acting, and Dance for Musical Theater provide a solid basis to support this program. Ad majorem dei gloriam!
Friday April 28th marks the opening night for TC Preps’ 10th Anniversary show of Shakespeare in the Spring. This season brings an all new take on Twelfth Night.
Our rendition opens on board a 1920’s Jazz Era cruise ship. The Speakeasy Club is bouncing, until it encounters a storm at sea. People are lost, identities confused, and the bounds of polite society mightily tested. As our heroin Viola (Lily Mortensen) emerges dressed as a man in order to enter the Duke’s court, she finds herself falling in love with the Duke himself, posing an awkward situation for all involved. The Duke however, is in love with the Lady Olivia (Sarah Zepeda) and sends his top servant (Viola, disguised as Cessario) on a mission to woo her. Olivia however, finds herself far more enamored by the handsome Cessario than the Duke. Further awkward. Olivia is attended by Festi, a witty yet angsty entertainer (played by Delaney Schroeder), and a lovable though drunken uncle Toby (played by Brennan Bence). Mischief ensues while characters duel each other through a contest of wits, dances and fights. In the style of every Shakespeare comedy, in the end, love conquers all.
Shows are Friday April 28th, Saturday April 29th at 7pm
Friday May 5th, Saturday May 6th at 7pm and Sunday May 7th 3pm Matinee
