Dr. Doug King (Professor in the English Department), Rev. Shawn Clerkin (Director of Theatre), and Jax Kubiak (Technical Director of the Schuster Theatre) took 10 students to Staunton, VA over Fall Break to experience workshops, lectures, and attend 4 performances at the American Shakespeare Center's Blackfriars Playhouse. Students attended 2 lectures, 3 workshops, and saw performances of The Comedy of Errors, Pericles Prince of Tyre, MacBeth, and Edward II.
