A little about me
My name is Elaena and I am thrilled to be the course blogger for this course! I'm a junior theatre major and management minor at Luther College. I'm from Mason City, Iowa which is only a couple hours away from Decroah, so this trip will be the farthest and longest I've been away from home!
I've been involved in many Luther productions in some form or another, whether it be behind the scenes or onstage. Through my involvement, I have learned that I love stage management! I have strong organizational skills, and I plan to put them to good use when writing this blog.
What I'm looking forward to
I--and everyone going on this trip--am beyond excited for this experience. Known for being an innovative and powerful place for theatre, London is a place where we will grow as artists and lovers of theatre. We have at least 18 plays to go to, and there is quite a variety. We are seeing several Shakespeare pieces at the Royal Shakespeare Company. We are also seeing contemporary works by Martin McDonagh, Simon Stephen, and more!
I'm also excited to get out of this cold and into the less-cold English weather of about 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
I'll see you once we land!
