One of the coolest things about college is the chance to try all sorts of new things.
Some of the best hidden gems at Illinois State are student performances
I was reminded recently about how great ISU's School of Theatre and Dance productions are when I got tickets to see Waiora.
I was super excited, and I didn't really know what to expect!
The stage set-up was sweet.
Then, it was show time.
The play blended colonial British with traditional Maori themes
The haka is still performed by New Zealand's All Blacks national rugby team
And WOW, the acting was good.
The entire production value also blew me away.
Bravo, my fellow Redbirds.
Want to know what other productions are coming up, Future Redbird? Check out the School of Theatre and Dance's schedule, and catch a performance next time you're here! And when you get to campus, be sure to check (or audition for!) a play or two!
