We will be travelling to Jean’s Playhouse in Lincoln, N.H. on Sept. 25 to see the matinee performance of “Dance Lessons in Six Weeks.” An aging but formidable retiree hires an acerbic dance instructor to give her lessons in her condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Fla. Antagonism between the gay man and the wife of a Southern Baptist minister gives way to profound compatibility as they swing dance, tango, foxtrot and cha-cha. The center van leaves at 9:30 a.m. with lunch at noon, and the matinee show 2 p.m. The cost includes transportation, lunch and the show
We have a great day trip coming up at the Flying Monkey in Plymouth, N.H. to see Rocky Mountain High, John Denver tribute show on Oct. 11. The price includes transportation, driver gratuity, lunch, show tax, and meal gratuity. Experience New Hampshire’s fall foliage as we travel to the White Mountains during peak foliage season to see one of the most realistic tribute shows to ever come across the stage. The legendary John Denver evokes memories of an era in music, which was both inspiring and influential. His music is a combination of romance, country, and environmentalist. Ted Vigil, according to long-time John Denver guitar accompanist Steve Weisberg, resembles John both physically and musically. Vigil is carrying on the tradition honoring this colossal music icon.
