The auditorium box office opens at 6:00pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and at 4:00pm on Friday.  

Also a reminder to please have your receipt printed or handy on your phone in order to easily find your seat. For some mobile apps, the seat numbers appear on the 2nd page of your receipt, so make sure to check before entering the building. Our mobile connection in the auditorium can be slow. 

If you are attending with your advisery, please check with your adviser if you should meet at a specific place and time. It will not be easy for ushers or front of house to check where your advisery is seated, so please try to have that information before coming to the show. 


Performing Arts Division


Lagniappe-Potpourri: Go! kicks off the New Trier High School Performing Arts Season Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19 at 7:00 pm and Friday, September 20 at 4:30 pm in the Gaffney Auditorium on the Winnetka Campus.  

Lagniappe-Potpourri is New Trier's annual variety show. Students contribute at all levels of the production and decision-making process including building, choreographing, composing, conducting, designing, directing, lighting, managing, marketing, performing, and writing. Lagniappe-Potpourri gives student board members the opportunity to work with specialized mentors to develop as leaders and feature student designers, technicians, musicians, dancers, writers and performers.

Over 120 students come together to make the show a reality. The leadership board began work this past spring putting together auditions, writing and composing sessions, and planning for rehearsals. The crew, band, and performers came together in August to prepare for the performances in September. Lagniappe-Potpourri may be one of New Trier’s longest running traditions, and that spirit is vibrant among the students who are ready to bring the tradition to a new generation of Trevians.
