On Saturday, Aug. 11, 14 talented students from the Amity Creative Theater and two award winning chaperones, Director Rob Kennedy and Costume Designer Julie Chevan embarked on the adventure of a lifetime — A trip to Europe and the opportunity for the students to perform the play “Almost Maine” before a global audience at the Fringe Festival in Edinberg, Scotland.
They hopped on an airplane in New York, and took an overnight flight to Heathrow Airport in London, England.
The group, wearing matching blue “Almost Maine” T-Shirts immediately began sight-seeing.
Kennedy reports they went “Right onto the Tube and into London. Saw Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster Abby, Buckingham Palace. We also watched the Olympic Mens Marathon. The city is electric! Our group was interviewed by NBC Nightly News which (aired on Sunday) at 6:30 p.m.
They were sleeping at the University of Birmingham Sunday and off to Stratford upon Avon first thing in the morning, today.
Here are some of Kennedy’s photos from the trip so far.
