Fifty-two students, employees, and guests took part in the college’s 30th annual spring trip to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival in Montgomery April 25-26.. The group saw professional performances of Shakespeare’s “As You Like It” and “King Lear” and enjoyed a stage-side chat with the “As You Like It” cast. They also got to share in cake being served in the theater lobby in celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday week.
A highlight of the trip was the guided tour of the Alabama State Capitol building. The tour guide had participated in the Selma Voting Rights March fifty years ago and was also involved in the making of the movie “Selma.” An optional walking tour also took participants to the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church and the National Civil Rights Memorial.
The annual trip is sponsored by Student Life and the Humanities Division and draws participants from all GHC locations.
On Sunday the group posed on the steps in front of the theater while John Spranza, Floyd campus student life coordinator, made the 2015 group photo.
