Halloween at the TPAC

Juliana Musselman

Last night was one of the best Halloweens I have ever had because, thanks to Vanderbilt, I got to go see a show at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TAPC) for free!

Allow me to explain: once a month or so Vanderbilt holds contests called Commodore Cruises that you can enter. If you win, the directors of Residential Education take a group of students and several faculty members on some really cool trips around Nashville. Ones in the past have included Titans games, the CMA Awards, and Broadway shows downtown. I almost always enter to win Commodore Cruises, and last night was the first one I had ever won! One of my other friends also won the cruise and we each got to bring a guest with us so we had a mini-reunion of sorts since all of us don’t get to hang out as often as we would like.

Our trip allowed us to go downtown to the TPAC in order to see a stage performance of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I have seen the musical version of Jekyll & Hyde, but this was more of a play that was closely based off of the book. It was in a smaller theater and the actors were absolutely fantastic. The show was a bit creepy at times, making it perfect for Halloween!

After the show, we traveled a short distance away to Big River Grille, a restaurant I had never been to before. They had prepared a delicious meal for us and we got to meet some of the other people on the cruise as well as chat with the faculty members who had been chosen to accompany us on the cruise. After a wonderful show and a delicious meal we got dropped off back on campus just in time for me to watch a scary movie with my roommate.

Overall, I had a great time last night! I’m so glad I finally won a Commodore Cruise because it allowed me to experience parts of Nashville I wasn’t as familiar with, and it also helped to make sure my Halloween was awesome!
