Day 9: Journey to Scotland

Today was our 2nd performance of Under the Influence.  At least our curtain was a little later in the morning at 11:25 am.  We were worried about the cast being able to call up the emotion and characterization needed to portray their roles, but as usual, the cast went to their rituals and stayed in their zone from the dorms to the Spaces@Surgeons Hall.

We had about 40 people in the audience today with the majority coming from El Camino High School in San Diego.  We also had a former resident of Hawaii, Nalani Olds Simpson, attend the show.  Nalani has been living in Scotland for quite some time and was also classmates with Christian's stepmom and we were honored to have Nalani and her family attend our show.

As for the performance, again, some amazing work by the students.  Some of the cast members actually gave their best performance to date.  Some very positive comments again from audience members.

We then went back to dorm for lunch and then attended a production of Nunsense by Nipomo High School.  What a performance!  The comedic timing, the vocals, and the improvisation by the cast was superb.  We had a great time.

We returned back to the dorms for dinner and much needed rest.

  1. Glad to see/hear things are going well. You are definitely having the time/experience of your lives . . . cherish every moment (you never know if/when you'll be able to come back again) . . . you are having so much fun, seeing great shows, and of course, putting on a powerful show . . . as well as sharing the aloha from Hawaii.

    Keep up the great work, keep on having fun, enjoying life, . . . continue to be safe and stay hydrated and rest when you can (as I'm sure you already know).

    It has been so great to relive my experiences in 1997 and 2007 through your journeys now. Carpe Diem.
