Shakespeare was an indescribable experience! We had an amazing time.

The ride up to Cedar City was three hours of non stop talking and laughing. When we arrived at the college campus we took a little tour then we were back on the bus and off to our hotel. We had stayed at a nice hotel called Holiday Inn Express.

 When we all got settled in our rooms, we got back on the bus to go to Tuachan to see Crazy for You. It was a musical filled with songs and laughs every few minutes. It was a beautiful night and the sky was clear and filled with stars.
