The Earlham College Theatre Arts Department adapted the script, created costumes, original music, props — including a bird with a 16-foot wingspan — and more for the April production of “The Misadventures of Martin Hathaway.”

Then they carried everything to Scotland in suitcases for four performances during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe as part of an EPIC Advantage program.

Associate Professor of Theatre Arts Lynne Perkins Socey knew that the 17 students would gain confidence and strengthen collaboration skills in a professional environment.

“Learning flexibility, resilience, communication and creative-problem solving skills were an added bonus,” she says. “Also, it was important for students to develop their personal aesthetic and sense of the kind of art they want to create as responsible citizen artists.”
