On Friday, May 25, 2018 Southwood Drama attended a trip to Stratford, ON to celebrate the end of their year with Ms. Amy Cruickshank and Mr. Troy Dettwiler.
The students participated in a hands-on workshop on the Festival Theatre stage with some of the Festival’s actors from the cast of To Kill a Mockingbird.
Next, the students had a lovely picnic lunch by the Avon River surrounded by picturesque nature. They got to try York Street Kitchen’s fresh sandwiches, and Boomer’s Fries famous gourmet fries…mmm.
Then, the students watched a matinee performance of To Kill a Mockingbird at the Festival Theatre. The performance blew them away because of the conviction, emotional depth and precision each of the actors portrayed in their roles.
From there the students were treated to a delicious Italian dinner at the swanky Pazzo Taverna & Pizzeria downtown.
After some evening shopping, the students watched the evening performance of The Rocky Horror Show at the Avon Theatre. The students were amazed at the high-energy, fast-paced choreography and incredible vocals by the entire cast. They were up in the aisles dancing along with the cast during the curtain call.
It was a memorable, fun-filled day with so many adventures that we will all remember for a very long time!
Here’s to 2018-19!
