The Master’s University Theatre Arts Presents

Sabrina Fair

By Samuel Taylor

A delightful romantic comedy set in 1950s Long Island, Sabrina Fair ushers you into the luxurious life of the Larrabees—a family accustomed to leisure, power, and influence. All is calm and as it should be until Sabrina Fairchild, the chauffeur’s daughter, arrives home from Paris. She returns to the apartment above the garage a refined woman, but unsure of one thing. Could a French suitor have a chance to win her heart? Or is she still in love with David, the youngest Larrabee son? While many would doubt the suitability of the relationship, David’s older brother Linus thinks the idea is amusing and takes up the challenge to orchestrate their marriage. But, is Linus himself immune to Sabrina’s charm, excitement, and love of life? Has he finally met his match? Sabrina Fair is a beautiful story that sparkles with wit and humor, love and family. Don’t miss it!

  • About Us

    Mission Statement

    Theatre productions at The Master’s University exist to glorify God and impact our community through thoughtful and excellent presentation of plays or musicals and by enjoying human creativity as a reflection of The Creator as becomes a child of God.

    Theatre Arts Overview

    TMU Theatre Arts is a co-curricular program offered by the School of Music, designed to give training and expression in the performing arts along-side any major at the university. TMU Theatre Arts has been dubbed “The People’s Theatre.” Its participants and contributors span across all disciplines, dorms, and interests at TMU. As a co-curricular program, any participating students can receive repeating credits in either theatre arts or production techniques and this will be reflected on their transcripts.

    It’s been 10 years since the program revival and the theatre department continues to be an amazing tool in the hands of the Lord in so many lives. We have seen the Lord use theatre to show how even a school play can be eternally significant. Lives are being changed, attitudes and perspectives altered, and love for the Lord and for each other keeps growing. Students are being trained in a Biblical philosophy of the performing arts while also learning and gaining experience in the craft of acting or the many aspects of production. Our commitment to the process as much as the product enables us to have an others-focused theatre department. This pervades all of these areas as we strive together to serve one another using our varied giftedness. Many of our graduates have continued into jobs in the arts industry or teaching and we love seeing how they are able to use their giftedness and be a gospel witness.

    Opportunities to be involved include acting, stage managing, lighting, sound, production design, video production & social media marketing, costuming, and makeup.

    We are excited to see how God continues to grow the program as those involved seek to serve and honor Him first and foremost through the medium of good theatre as a gift to the audience with no compromise of who we are as children of God.

    Tricia Hulet

    Director of TMU Theatre Arts|Music Events Coordinator

    Tricia directs the Theatre Arts program and teaches Production Techniques & Stage Training. She also produces the annual Christmas and Forest Lawn concerts series and manages all concerts, recitals, and events through the School of Music. She is a graduate of The Master’s College (MA Biblical Counseling; ACBC Certified; BA Biblical Counseling/minor in Music), where she studied voice and was extensively involved in musical theatre while studying Biblical Counseling. She has held leading roles in several major productions including Hodel in “Fiddler on the Roof”, and Mary Lennox in the musical version of “The Secret Garden”. Tricia values the authority and sufficiency of Scripture in all things and loves being a student of people and their stories, from a Biblical worldview. She first began directing theatre in 2004 for a Christian high school; she was then brought on in 2007 to revive Theatre Arts under the umbrella of the School of Music. Tricia has seen theatre arts function as a refining tool in many lives - shaping and sharpening hearts to live in light of the Gospel we have been graciously saved by - and used to build another example of biblical community that is a bright light to the watching world. Helping students round out their biblical worldview in the area of performing arts is a joy and blessing. Tricia and her husband, Dave - the Dean of Men here at TMU, met here as students and are blessed to continue work at The Master’s University together and be members of Grace Community Church.

    James Phillipps

    Assistant Director

    James has been involved with TMU Theater Arts since his freshman year in 2007. As a student at Master’s, he participated in every show the revived department put on, beginning with the role of Merriman in “The Importance of Being Earnest” in 2007 and culminating with the lead role of Nick Cristano in “Over the River and Through the Woods” in 2011. During his time as a college student, James saw the Lord use theater in an incredible way to shape him as a Christian. He is grateful to be able to give back to the current students some of what he learned through TMU Theater. James currently serves as the Student Accounts Manager for the University and Seminary. He constantly tells people he has the privilege of working at the best school in the world, and he hopes to continue serving in both Accounting and Theatre for as long as the Lord lets him.

    Seth Bowling

    Assistant Director

    Raised in Northern California, Seth moved to Los Angeles to attend The Master’s University and pursue a career in the film industry using his degree in Communications. Seth performed in two productions with TMU Theatre Arts while a student - Nick Cristano in the Fall 2017 revival production of “Over the River and Through the Woods,” and Henry Tilney in “Northanger Abbey.” Due to his desire to work professionally in the industry, Seth is grateful to get to be a part of this Christ-centered program, as he knows it is a rare opportunity in the performing arts. Theater at TMU has pushed him as an actor and as a whole person being made more into the image of Christ. Now as an Assistant Director, he is excited for the opportunity to give back to the current students what he has learned through this program and his time in the film industry. He is excited to work in this capacity alongside the cast, crew, and fellow directors to display God’s glory both on and off the stage.

    “Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’ – yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.’” James 4:13-15
