Week Fourteen: Oxford

It may be a little late, but we’ve been transferring back into school mode for these last two weeks of classes.

The run time for the show also wasn’t very long so I would definitely recommend it for costuming and set dressing if not anything else. Continue reading “Week Seven: Dublin”
