During a 20-day, 18 night trip to London, the world's foremost theater center, students studied and attended at least a dozen stage productions. These productions included dramas, comedies and musicals by the best theatrical groups in the world which were performed in London's most famous theaters, from the most historic to the most modern, including ornate West End theaters to the elaborate Barbican and National Theater complexes. The performances that students attended were the subjects for reading, lectures and discussions, therefore providing insight into England's rich theatrical heritage and Britain's culture. In addition to its survery of drama, the trip provided students with extensive tours of historic sites, royal palaces, art galleries, government buildings and churches.
