Explore British drama and culture by experiencing British theatre in action.

We'll learn about staging, lighting, costuming, music, directing, art and set design while on backstage tours at such places as the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the National Theatre, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour. Tentatively scheduled field trip sites designed to enrich your appreciation of the historical background and cultural setting of British theatre are Shakespeare's hometown of Stratford-upon-Avon, Westminster Abbey, Dover Castle, and Hampton Court Palace. Return home with a wealth of experience and knowledge about British drama and English culture. Join me as we participate together in our excellent adventure for a truly dramatic field trip of a lifetime before the final curtain call!
