More than a dozen Amity Creative Theater Students were invited to perform the play “Almost Maine” at the Edinberg Fringe Festival in Scotland. They held Fundraisers to help pay their way and departed on August 11 with chaperones Rob Kennedy and Julie Chevan.

Orange Live has been sharing information and photos from their trip provided by Kennedy and parent Russ Adair.

On Saturday Kennedy reported, “Another fabulous day here in Scotland. This kids got a little rest and hung around here at our accommodations at the University of Edinburgh.”

“We had our afternoon performance of ‘Almost, Maine,’ which had a very nice sized audience of 50 (the average Fringe audience is 8),” he said. ” we had a quick bite for lunch and went back to the Churchill Theater to see a company from Canada perform the Jungle Book.”

After dinner together with special guests Russ and Laura Adair the group split up to see shows.

“Tomorrow (Sunday) is show three! The 14 days are going so fast!” he said.

Here are some photos from Saturday’s activities.

Amity Students in Scotland

More than a dozen students from the Amity Creative Theater (ATC) Department are in Europe where they were invited to perform the play “Almost Maine” at the Fringe Festival in Edinberg, Scotland. Director Rob Kennedy is one of their Chaperones and has been reporting back to us every day.

On Friday, Day 6, Kennedy wrote, “‘Almost Maine’ opened today and the students were excellent! Great performances both onstage and off!”

“We also toured Edinburgh Castle this morning, saw an “interesting” production of Alice in Wonderland by another AHSTF school and a few of us saw a great Canadian comedian,” he said. “Best surprise of the day was that two of our ACT parents (The Tambis’s) showed up unbeknownst to their daughter!”

The group looks forward to another full day, show two today.

Here are some of Kennedy’s photos from Day 6.
