Theatre Professor Paul Trimpey to speak, The Taffetas to perform at HC Foundation breakfast

Huntington, Ind.— Get an early start to your Valentine’s Day celebrations by attending the next breakfast of The Huntington College Foundation on Wednesday, February 14, 2001. Ms. Paula Trimpey, assistant professor of theatre, will address the topic of theatre and the church.

In addition to Trimpey’s presentation, “The Taffetas” will perform selected songs from their recent performance at Huntington College. Trimpey, who served as director for the production, says “The Taffetas is the story of a 1950’s all-girl singing group who take us through the fabulous 50’s in a musical review.” The cast includes HC students Leah Coon, Katie Harner, Aubrey Kocan, and Huntington County’s own Jessica Abbott.

Ms. Paula Trimpey joined the Huntington College Theatre faculty roster in 2000. Trimpey has a Masters degree in Fine Arts from Wayne State University, a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from Messiah College, and is currently working on a Masters in Religion through Concordia Theological Seminary. Trimpey taught theatre for eight years at Dixie College in Utah, and prior to that was the Costume Shop Manager at Pomona College in California. She enjoys spending her summers as a Cutter/Draper for the Utah Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City, Utah, which won a Tony Award as the best regional theatre in the country.

Breakfast will be served at 7:45 a.m. in the Habecker Dining Commons. The program will conclude by 9:00 a.m. The cost of the breakfast is $6 per person. First-time guests are not charged, thanks to the generous support of Bailey-Love Mortuary.
