Another Successful Trip to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival
Fifty-two students, faculty, staff and guests took part in the college’s 31st annual trip to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery this past weekend.
The group saw an excellent production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on the Festival Stage and an outstanding version of “Driving Miss Daisy” on the Octagon Stage. All three actors came out for the Stage Side Chat following “Driving Miss Daisy,” and their insights were very interesting.
A tour of the Civil Rights Memorial Center and a visit to the National Civil Rights Memorial provided good preparation for seeing “Driving Miss Daisy,” and many in the group chose to add their names to those on the digital Wall of Tolerance in the Memorial Center.
Despite some stormy weather during part of the bus ride home, the trip participants didn’t get wet at all, and they got to enjoy lunch on the ASF lawn and exploring the Shakespeare Garden and the rest of the park.
The annual trip is sponsored by the Humanities Division and the Office of Student Life. This year’s trip coordinators were Kristie Kemper and Frank Minor, from Humanities, and John Spranza and Abraham Ortiz, from Student Life.
