Hi! My name is Gabby and I am one of the Social Media Interns in the Office of Admissions at the College of the Holy Cross. In November, Joanna (the other Social Media Intern!) and I went to see Lope De Vega’s Fuenteovejuna, a Golden Age Spanish play set during the Spanish Civil War. The Theatre and Spanish Departments worked together to present a bilingual version of the play, which is typically only presented in Spanish!
Fuenteovejuna was the first play I’ve ever been to at Holy Cross, and it definitely won’t be my last! With dynamic student actors and musicians, beautiful costumes and props, and meaningful content, Fuenteovejuna was an amazing show. It was presented in the Fenwick Theater, which is located on the second floor of O’Kane Hall.
One of the best parts of going to theatrical performances at Holy Cross is seeing your friends do something they love- whether it’s Midnight Theater (individual acts put on late at night) or the Spring Musical! I saw so many students in Fuenteovejuna that I didn’t even know acted! It was so exciting to see what Holy Cross students are capable of outside of the classroom!
I highly recommend that students and their families participate in the arts at Holy Cross. Although I’m not an incredibly artsy person (I draw stick figures!), the arts are a crucial part of the liberal arts education Holy Cross provides, and they add great substance and detail to the Holy Cross experience.
