A group of 12 Bainbridge College (BC) students from throughout southwest Georgia and two professors traveled to Montgomery, AL, to see the Alabama Shakespeare Festival's production of the modern drama, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.

Miller, who died in 2005, earned a Pulitzer Prize and a Drama Critics Circle Award for the play, considered his most famous and well-respected work, said Dr. Margaret Smith, a member of the BC English faculty.

The third in a series of theatre excursions this academic year, the trip sponsors were Sigma Kappa Delta (SKD) English Honor Society, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and BC Student Activities. Those attending from Bainbridge College were Mattie Hampton, David Hargrove, Jenny Perry, Chris Timmons and McKay Webb, all of Bainbridge; Mary Bullock of Brinson; Bridget Eidson of Blakely; Kim Foister of Camilla; Nicole Roberts of Colquitt; Precious Wynn of Donalsonville; Franklin Smith and Laila Torof, both of Whigham, and English faculty members Dr. Betty LaFace and Dr. Smith, who is SKD co-advisor with Dr. Marina Von Hirsch.

In addition to the March 24 trip to Alabama, BC students had two earlier opportunities to see live theatre. One group saw Shakespeare's As You Like It at Florida State University, and another group saw Tallahassee Little Theater's production of Oscar Wilde's comedy, The Importance of Being Earnest.
