Again, Trisha sang with the Senior Chorus, this time under the direction of Ramon Reeberg. They performed Handel’s
Trisha played the lead in the original piece called Privacy. This was done in a
collaboration between BMI Musical Workshop and Trisha's high school, La Guardia High School.
Trisha said about the show: "We only did an excerpt, but it was a musical comedy about a young woman's [her character's] trouble
finding privacy in NYC."
Later that year, also through the BMI Musical Workshop/La Guardia collaboration, Trisha worked
another original piece called Don't Rip That Fine Line by Rosalinde O'Rourke. She played the character "Angel."
Inger Burton brought Trisha in as a guest choreographer at Harlem School of the Arts to
do "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story going up at the Apollo Theatre with other HSA skits.
Ms. Burton was then the theatre group director for the Youth Activities Committee (YAC) Theatre Workshop.
This was the after-school program in Co-Op City in the Bronx that Trisha joined at the age of 13 that first introduced
her to theatre.
Trisha performed on the Japanese tv show Akko Ni Omakase. She performed with a few selected choir students
from La Guardia. Trisha also choreographed the choir's movements. The choir was put together by La Guardia
music teacher Dennis Bell, "a notable musician, writer for some U2's older stuff, and also a former producer for Doug E. Fresh.
Dennis Bell was the man at LaGuardia H.S."
