The village of Trinity is one of Newfoundland and Labradors most beautiful spots, combining spectacular scenery with traditional architecture. Its also home to the professional Rising Tide Theatre company. You wont see Neil Simon or other typical summer stock here. Rising Tides specialty is works with provincial themes, from perennial favorite Saltwater Moon by noted Canadian playwright David French, about a bickering, courting couple in 1926, to newly commissioned works like Brand New Beat, about Newfoundland and Labradors summer of 1964 discovery of rock n roll. Costumed actors in The New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant offer historical and musical vignettes as they lead a walking tour through the village. If the landscape seems familiar, it may be because the 2001 film The Shipping News was filmed nearby.
