- One of the best summers of my life!07/08/12
The Duke in London Summer Drama program was absolutely fantastic! It is the perfect program for anyone with an affinity for drama who also has a passion for travelling! The program includes the perfect balance of morning classes with evening shows, so
there is a lot of time to yourself in the afternoons to explore and venture out! During our 5 day study break in the middle of the program, I was able to travel to Cologne, Germany! And I also got the chance to coordinate a weekend trip to Paris with the other students on the program! Duke in London is definitely an incredible, once in a lifetime experience! You will see more live theatre than you have ever seen in your entire life (about 30 plays and musicals by the summer's end!) and meet and study alongside professional London actors! I would do this program again in a heartbeat!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
