As their adventure of a lifetime winds down, Amity Drama teacher Rob Kennedy, fellow chaperone Julie Chevan, and 15 Amity Performing Arts students are making the most of their last days in Scotland where the students were invited to perform the play “Almost, Maine” at the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh.
Kennedy’s latest installment from the trip, posted Wednesday, Aug. 22, goes as follows:
“Exhausted! Why? Left at 8 a.m. for an all-day tour of Stirling Castle (Home to Mary Queen of Scotts and the site of many battles of William “Braveheart” Wallace), met a Highland Coo (that’s the way they pronounce it), climbed the highlands, danced among the heather and shopped till we dropped at a local woolen mill.”
“Afterwards we saw a ton of shows including: “One Man Lord of the Rings,” “Sweeney Todd” and “The Blind,”” he wrote. “Still others took part in a Edinburgh dungeon and ghost tour! Phew!”
Today, August 23, is the closing ceremonies for the Fringe Festival, where Kennedy has been asked to speak. It also is the group’s last opportunity to see some of the best theater in the world.
Orange Live looks forward to welcoming these wonderful kids and their chaperones back to Amity just before the start of the new school year.
