Mission

Trinity House Theatre exists to enrich and enliven the communities of Southeastern Michigan through brave, truthful and necessary works of art.

History

Founded in 1981 by Paul Patton and members of Trinity Baptist Church in Livonia as a venue for live theatre, it was incorporated separately as a non-profit arts organization in 1988.  The theatre’s focus switched to live music in 1999, and since then Trinity House has provided concert goers with one of the state’s best listening rooms.

“An absolute gem of a listening room and with a dedication to the arts community unlike any other.  I can’t say enough good things – we are thrilled to be in the audience or on the stage.” ~ Annie Capps

“Trinity House has been such a great place to perform….great dynamic setting…perfect for acoustic music.” ~ Jason Dennie

“The love and faith I have received from the community there have really helped to sustain me in those times where I think I should give it up and go bag groceries…I think God was in this.  I don’t throw those kinds of thoughts out often these days.  But I do, I think the spirit of Trinity House, is an answer to the prayer and passion that went into the foundation.” ~ Jan Krist

“There’s alot of things people could do with their time and money and this is a pretty good one.  Trinity House is a bastion of truth, light and hope in the belly of the beast.  This is one of my favorite places to play in Michigan.” ~  Drew Nelson

The Cemetery

The cemetery surrounding the theatre is called Union Cemetery or Briggs Cemetery. Though there are numerous errors (e.g. graves are not covered by wild overgrowth, Trinity House Theatre not Trinity Baptists is the current occupant, Trinity House is a theatre not a church, the city provides no assistance) here’s a short article about the cemetery.

A list of the graves located in the cemetery and a couple pictures can be seen here http://www.interment.net/data/us/mi/wayne/union/union.htm.
