Students to to Feast in Philly with the Bard

Posted on March 10, 2015 by


Although it is nearly a month away, students at FAHS are getting hyped about the field trip with Mr. Walter on 10 April 2015. The play is A Mid-Summer Night’s Dream. It is being performed by the Philadelphia Shakespeare Theatre from seven in the morning until three in the afternoon. The cost is thirty-five dollars, all-inclusive, except for breakfast.

When students arrive in Philadelphia, there will be multiple places where they can purchase breakfast. There will be a pizza party on the way home, during which English teacher Marc Walter will be kind enough to buy pizza, bags of chips, and drinks for all of the students attending the trip. There are a total of eighty-four students attending and six chaperones supervising the students. This will completely fill the two school buses going on the trip.

“My favorite part about the field trip is watching the student’s reactions. It’s amazing how the intimate setting can control people’s reactions,” Walter said.

“The field trip was fun. The actors are in your face and really close up,” junior Joshua Campbell said.

After the play is over, the actors and actresses come back out on the stage and are able to talk to the students. They are able to answer any questions that the students may have about the play. They talk about things such as their experiences, their lives, and the way they feel while acting.

“I am looking forward to seeing the play and eating at the different breakfast places,” junior Megan Burkert said.

“I’m looking forward to the food,” freshman Ethan Smith said.

“I’m looking forward to eating at the breakfast places,” junior Tianna Tracy said.

“I wish I could be going! That would be so much fun!” science teacher Matthew Biniek said.

If students are not able to go this year on the field trip, there is always next year and the year after, depending on the grade level.

“I never have gone on this field trip before; however, I wish I could have experienced the different breakfast places for food,” senior Emily Majewski said.
