29th Annual Weekend Play Trip
ALABAMA SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
Saturday & Sunday
April 26-27, 2014
The annual ASF trip is GHC’s Favorite Spring Getaway . . .
And GHC students, faculty and their guests are invited to become part of this popular college tradition!
This year’s trip will feature the world premiere of a modern English version of Shakespeare’s play Timon of Athens presented by the professional cast at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. The second play will be the famous and hilarious comedy “The Importance of Being Earnest” at the Faulkner University Dinner Theater.
Extra credit is offered in all English classes and in many other classes as well. Partial course credit is available for those who register for IDIS 1100-20072, IDIS 1101-20073, or HUMS 2011-20771 at 12:30-1:45 p.m. MW on the Floyd campus.
The low trip fee covers tour bus transportation, hotel accommodations, tickets to the two plays--one at ASF’s multi-million dollar theater complex and one at the Faulkner’s Dinner Theater—an information packet, and two meals—supper at the Dinner Theater and a lunch on ASF’s beautifully landscaped grounds. There should also be time for a little shopping and/or sightseeing. (The cost of this year’s trip is not yet set, but it is expected to be in the range of $120 per person.)
Detailed information about cost and sign-up deadlines will be available here early in the Spring Semester and from the Student Life Offices and the Humanities Division Office Be sure to sign up early since this trip fills up fast.
