Join us on a theatre tour to London- June 2018

LONDON_478x250_acf_cropped

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, it is critical for us to become more culturally aware and globally-minded.  To be able to experience the global classroom first-hand and see what they have been studying come to life is truly amazing. It gives them new perspectives – not only of themselves, but also of the world around them!

We are pleased to announce a theatre tour to England in 2018. The lights dim and the voices hush. The curtain rises and you’re swept away by the performance on stage. London’s theater scene has something for every audience. Tragedies, comedies and musicals. Long-running favorites and groundbreaking debuts. You’ll explore theater’s roots at Shakespeare’s Globe and learn about its present and future during backstage tours and lectures. And of course, London is a show in its own right.

We have chosen to travel with EF because of their reputation as the world leader in international education. They have been in business for more than 50 years and have local offices in over 50 countries throughout the world. EF guarantees the lowest prices for the highest quality and also offers a monthly payment plan to make the trip more affordable.

Sneak Previews

These are the final dress rehearsals for our mainstage shows. Currently enrolled theatre school students are invited to watch with the understanding that the show is not quite finished. It is a great learning opportunity for all the students. Not all of the shows are age appropriate and we will let you know, however, we feel it’s important for the students to see as much live theatre as possible and are open to discussion about all of the productions. No parents or family members are invited.
