"Artists Tell the Story"
This year Tri-School is ecstatic to announce our 29th Season “Artists Tell the Story”. It’s long been the objective of Tri-School students to approach our productions as storytellers. With each show we produce, we sift through the text, music, and movement in a fresh, detailed, and nuanced manner as we breathe life into these works onstage. This year’s offerings are collections of some of the greatest stories ever told! Beginning with the world’s first storytellers, our fall play is The Iliad, The Odyssey, and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less. Next, you asked for it and we heard you, Erin McNally is graciously starring in another one-night-only benefit concert. Lastly, our spring musical combines some of the most beloved fairytale characters of all time in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. We hope to see you there!
The Illiad, The Odyssey, and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less
November 9th, 10th, and 11th at 7pm; November 11th and 12th at 2pm
With the sands running through the Hour Glass in front of everyone's eyes, the cast speeds through all of Greek Mythology. It’s funny, updated and made easy to understand. The Gods walk the Red Carpet, the Creation of Mankind is a botched subcontractors job, And love stories are a dating show! And don't forget the two greatest stories ever told, The Iliad and The Odyssey. All the silly decisions, the absurd destinies, and the goofy characters are presented lightning-bolt fast with hysterical results as the clock is stopped with only seconds to spare.
Presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH INC.

INTO THE WOODS
May 3th, 4th, and 5th at 7pm; May 6th at 2pm
This modern classic take everyone's favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the spell. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
