Drama Lost in New York

Isabelle Campbell, Senior Reporter

The Bainbridge High School Drama visited New York City on March 30-April 2. They traveled through Bob Rogers Travel Company and were guided by Mr. Greg from the company. This trip was the first time many of the students flew on a plane. The group left at 4 a.m. on March 30, and took a bus all the way to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. They flew on JetBlue and left around 12 p.m., which put their arrival time around 2 p.m. Once in New York, they collected their luggage and took the Sky Train, as well as the New York Subway to get to their hotel. The Drama students stayed in the Hampton Inn Manhattan Times Square South, which was only a few blocks away from Times Square. That first night, they ate at Gayle’s Broadway Rose, where aspiring Broadway stars sang while they ate. And finally, that night they visited Times Square.

On the second day, the drama kids started the day by walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. Afterwards, they visited China Town and ate fried dumplings and pork buns. The chaperone groups had the opportunity to walk around China Town and visit Little Italy as well. The group went to Governor’s Island via ferry, and then visited Trinity Church and the 9/11 Memorial. They ate at Tick Tock Diner and then watched “The Play That Goes Wrong” on Broadway. 

On the third day, they went to a Broadway Imagined workshop, where they learned a song and a dance. They then went to Columbus Circle to eat, and visited the Top of the Rock and the Rockefeller Center. The group also visited Central Park and Times Square once more. The drama kids ate at Dallas BBQ. They watched “And Juliet” that night on Broadway. 

On the last day, the group took the Roosevelt Island Tram and visited Grand Central Station. They also visited Rockefeller Center one last time, before getting their luggage and flying home.
