Day 11: Journey to Scotland: 3rd Performance

NPAC in front of Church Hill Theatre

Our 11th day on this trip began with interviews with Roy and Glen of PBS Hawaii.  Each student and alumni took turns in answering questions about their experience on this trip.  

We then prepared for our 3rd performance of Under the Influence.  With the rain continuing to fall, we tried to get ready as best as we could for 3:25 pm curtain.  We knew this performance would be a challenge as the long hours and distractions would take its toll.  

The performance went fine, but not as tight as past performances, but the students gave it their all and for most of the audience (including high school from Kentucky, thank you!), it didn't matter as they were supportive and many were moved by the students' performances.  I am amazed at how the NPAC students are able to perform a play that is so emotionally draining, time and time again.  I have no doubt that tomorrow, our final performance in Edinburgh and perhaps ever for this play, will be a hit.

We then returned back to the dorms to eat dinner and prepare to see All Shook Up . . . based on Elvis songs.  The cast from El Camino High School in California gave a high energy and entertaining performance.  Strong lead cast members and great ensemble work made everyone fall in love with Elvis songs all over again.  

Just a side note . . .  we want to let everyone know that the riots that have occurred in London began a day after we left London.  But our hearts go out to everyone we met while we were there last week and we pray that everyone is safe and stays safe.
