Theatre Department Takes Biennial Trip to London

In addition to athletic spring training trips by our baseballlacrosse, and boys’ and girls’ crew teams, the Arts Department took its biennial Theatre Trip to London over spring break.

On top of two days of theatre workshops with a teacher from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, a trip to Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford, a seminar with the theatre critic for the International New York Times, and a tour of the National Theatre, the group saw eight shows in seven days.

Highlights included seeing Bryan Cranston in a multimedia adaptation of the film Network, taking part in immersive staging of Julius Caesar where the audience is part of the action, and catching The Ferryman in London before it opens on Broadway in the fall.

When they weren’t enjoying their jam-packed theatre itinerary, the group made sure to take in plenty of local culture, with visits to gourmet food destinations, a walk through Borough Market, and a trip to Oxford to explore the world’s oldest English-speaking university. The seven days in London truly were a dream trip for the Middlesex actors, stage crew, and faculty!
