Newsies: Chicago Theatre Day Trip
December 13, 2014
Direct from Broadway comes: NEWSIES, the crowd-pleasing new musical from Disney. Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards® for Best Score and Best Choreography, Newsies is a smash-hit! Filled with one heart-pounding number after another, Newsies is based on true events. Newsies tells the captivating story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York. It's a rousing tale about fighting for what's right…and staying true to who you are.
Includes lunch at The Walnut Room in Macy’s.
Book of Mormon
CHICAGO THEATRE DAY TRIP
With Vic Passante
March 22, 2015
THE BOOK OF MORMON, winner of 9 Tony Awards, is returning to Chicago, and Continuing Education is bringing you there. This irreverent lampoon, written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of Comedy Central’s South Park follows two Mormon missionaries to a village in northern Uganda. The two men try to share their scriptures with a terrorized people who are plagued with a murderous chieftain, poverty and AIDS. Somehow Parker and Stone bring satire, song, and dance to those events and audiences can’t stop cheering. CE will give you another chance to see why THE BOOK OF MORMON is such a phenomenon.
