The centre piece of the Theatre Program at Grenfell since its inception is the extended trip to Memorial University's campus in Harlow, England.
Currently, the trip occurs in the second semester of fourth year and is anywhere from six to eight weeks in duration.
While resident in Harlow, our students take courses from British theatre professionals, visit museums and galleries, travel throughout Europe and, of course, see all manner of world class theatre - everything from Shakespeare at the Royal Shakespeare Company to leading contemporary productions at the Royal National Theatre, opera, ballet and cutting edge fringe productions.
The Harlow trip is a compulsory component of the program and, in that regard, is a feature both unique and exciting about our theatre program. Many of our graduates claim that the time they spent in Harlow was both life-affirming and life altering.
