England: Classic and Modern British Theatre in London’s West End (Grades 9-12)

Travel to England, the homeland of Shakespeare, Wilde and Pinter, to learn firsthand about the culture that produced such a rich history of theatre. We begin on campus, studying the context, biographies and textual styles of great British playwrights, then see their works performed in historically listed theatres by the world’s greatest classically trained actors. From our base in London’s West End, we will explore Westminster, Shakespeare’s Globe and The National Theatre, as well as see contemporary work performed at some of the smaller boutique theatres in North London. We will conclude with a wrap-up day on campus, including student presentations, projects and short films analyzing the experience.
