Giovanoli Works Hard Behind the Scenes

   The 2023 to 2024 school year has brought many new additions to Trinity staff, including Kimberely Giovanoli, who will be joining the Fine Arts department as a part-time stagecraft teacher. Previously, Giovanoli has worked on numerous theater productions throughout Florida, most recently as the make-up artist for Trinity’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe last winter. 

   Now, as a staff member, she will be devoting her time to Trinity’s upcoming production, The Government Inspector, which she describes as a farcical comedy. She will also be helping with the school’s theatrical rendition of Mean Girls. Giovanoli also has two new children attending Trinity this year, a sixth grader and a freshman.

   A fifth-generation Floridian, Giovanoli grew up in Stuart, Fla, a small town on the east coast. From a young age, she found an interest in the arts and soon found herself on the set of her local theater. Once there, she quickly fell in love with the world of drama and the people involved.

   “It was fun,” Giovanoli said. “The most interesting people in a very small town were the theater people.”

    After graduating high school, she came to Central Florida to get her bachelor’s degree in musical theater at Rollins College, just down the road from Trinity. Giovanoli expressed that now, as a member of the Trinity family, she hopes to encourage more students to join the drama program.

   “There’s a place for everyone in theater,” Giovanoli said. “There’s definitely some part of it that speaks to almost everyone, and all are welcome here.”

   Outside the campus, Giovonali keeps herself occupied. When she is not serving on the boards of several charities or assisting her husband with his law practice, she is also an artist, working with several mediums from painting to sculpture and glasswork.

   Apart from her time in Florida, Giovanoli also spent seven years living in Italy and wants to encourage all students to spend some time abroad. 

   “I highly recommend [going abroad],” Giovanoli said. “Open up your perspective, broaden your horizons, meet new people, strike up conversations. It makes life so interesting.”
