Using just iPads, 12 Lynn University students who are traveling to Dublin, Ireland on April Almost, Maine 5, will live-stream a performance of Almost, Maine to students, staff and faculty inside the television studio in Lynn's College of International Communication. The performances will be streamed live at 12:30 p.m. on April 8 and at 2:30 p.m. on April 11.

The students, along with two professors and a member from technical support, will be traveling to Dublin as part of an exchange program with American College Dublin. The performance will take place inside Oscar Wilde’s home and at the Dublin Theatre Smock Alley. The show, a romantic comedy written by John Cariani, will be performed twice during the students’ trip, and then again when they return to Lynn.

“This is an opportunity that few students have,” said professor Adam Simpson. “Our commitment to study abroad and our relationship with American College Dublin has given us the opportunity to showcase our talent with the world.”
