ENGLAND & SCOTLAND, THEATRE

APPLICATION FEE & DEADLINE

$75; January 1, 2018

PROGRAM DATES

July 13 – August 9, 2018 (4 weeks)

PROGRAM DETAILS

Students will live in shared student housing in the middle of London for approximately 2 weeks while completing 3-6 credits of Theatre History I and Theatre History 2. Both classes are required in every major within the Theatre Programs. London is an ideal place to study theatre as much of our earliest written knowledge of western theatre stems from England. We are able to combine history with trips to see The reconstructed Globe Theatre, visits to Avon-upon-Stratford and immerse our students in some of the world's current best theatre and theatre practices.

Students then travel for approximately 1 week to Scotland to participate in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Performers and practicioners from all over the world come to Edinborough each year for this Festival. Students are given the opportunity to see work from all over the world in a very compact amount of time. There is no impact quite like teaching students about the theatrical origins of Evensong and its medieval birth and then taking them to Paul's Cathedral to experience it for themselves the way people have for nearly 1000 years.
