Mr. J. Tanner Trigg

Hello! I am Mr. Trigg and this is my 2nd year at Nimitz/Stem. I started my time in theatre in middle school and have now been a part of over 30 productions within the realms of Acting, Directing, Design, Costumes, Set, Stage Managing, and now Teaching!

After graduating from Sharyland Pioneer High School (Mission, TX) in 2016, I continued my education at McPherson College (McPherson, KS) where I graduated with a BA double major in Performing Arts: Theatre / Philosophy & Religion. I am also a former collegiate athlete where I competed in Track and Field at McPherson College on an academic/athletic scholarship.

My goal as a theatre teacher is not to bring up the next big star, technician, or director. My goal is to create lifelong advocates for not just theatre, but the arts as a whole. 

"Love the art in yourself, not yourself in the art." -Konstantine Stanislovski
