In the Theater Department at Trinity-Pawling, there’s a place for everyone! Through an array of theater courses and extracurriculars, the Theater Department ignites passion in our students, in all aspects of the theater arts — whether acting, improvisation, directing, playwriting, producing, or lighting and set design. With his innovative and student-centered approach, Director of Theater Arts William Norman creates a 360-degree view of the theater for his students, fostering creativity and self-discovery at every turn.

Be Inspired by
New York City!
The hub of art and culture — New York City — is our neighbor! Throughout the year, students can catch a train from Pawling to NYC to experience some of the most dynamic theater performances in the world, from highly-acclaimed Broadway shows to smaller, edgier productions. The trips increase our students’ exposure to all types of live theater, and perhaps spark an interest that they may not have discovered otherwise.

Past Productions at Trinity-Pawling
I started my acting career at Trinity-Pawling as Juror #4 in Twelve Angry Men. That's where I caught the bug that set the course for my life. I felt comfortable on stage and in front of the camera. I learned that if you find something you're good at, latch on to it.
