The students held numerous fundraisers in order to make the trip possible. The word thanks was mentioned several times this morning. “This time last year this was just a dream,” said senior Spenser Johnson. “It was all a blessing through the community and alumni support. We are so thankful.” Scott Kickhaefer, head of the Highland Park High School Theater, said “It has been a very hectic year, but they (the students) are ready.”
After a short stay in London for sightseeing and a workshop with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the group will head to Edinburgh, Scotland, where they will present their play on August 7th.
