Theatre Travel

Join the Trippers!

Enjoy travel? Love theatre? Join The Trippers, a fun-loving group of American Stage theatre travelers. Up to four trips per year are offered with an annual theater trip to New York City every March, a trip to the Shaw Festival at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario in the summer, and two other trips to exciting US and European cities. Past trips have included visits to England, Ireland, many regions in France and Italy, the Czech Republic, regions of Canada, and trans-Atlantic crossings.

Over the years, the trips have raised over one million dollars for American Stage while providing Trippers with great memories and good times. Trippers typically stay in four-star hotels, eat in the finest local restaurants, and receive excellent seats at some of the world’s best theatres. These high-quality trips are a good value for our guests based on American Stage’s travel connections and partners. (A tax-deductible donation to American Stage is included in the cost of each trip.)

March 25-29, 2020

Here’s the plan:

  • We fly nonstop to New York.
  • We’re met by our trusty bus to transport us to the SOFITEL, 44th St. off 5th Avenue near all the shops! (The bus will be with us during the entire trip for transporting to theatres and all events.) The 4-star Sofitel has walk-in showers and tubs and an excellent restaurant where we will enjoy a fabulous breakfast daily.
  • We see four outstanding performances.
  • We have a behind-the-scenes tour of Lincoln Center followed by a group lunch at the Michelin-starred Lincoln Ristorante.
  • We enjoy an excellent Sunday brunch together.

The four days we are there will be filled with THEATRE, the main reason we go to New York! These are the shows we have confirmed:

  • Girl from the North Country, the musical smash hit from the West End and the Public. Written and directed by Conor McPherson with re-imagined music by Bob Dylan, this rousing and critically-acclaimed musical shares a universal story of love and family.
  • Flying Over Sunset, Lincoln Center’s new production written and directed by James Lapine, explores 1957 Hollywood in an imaginative meeting of Aldous Huxley, Carey Grant, and Clare Booth Luce.
  • Plaza Suite, Neil Simon’s classic comedy and currently one of the hardest tickets to get on Broadway, starring Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker. Need we say more?
  • The Minutes, playwright Tracy Letts’ brisk, scathing new comedy about small-town politics and real-world power.

Here’s what the trip will include:

  • Round trip air, bus service from and to N.Y. airport
  • 4 nights at the four-star Sofitel hotel with breakfast daily except Sunday
  • 4 great theatre events with round-trip bus service
  • A trip uptown to Lincoln Center for a behind-the-scenes tour
  • A group lunch
  • An elegant Sunday brunch
  • A $200.00 tax-deductible donation to American Stage

FOR ALL THIS THE COST IS $2,970.00*. (Single supplement: $800.00)
You may pay this in 3 installments:
Due now ($990)
January 1 ($990)
February 1 ($990)
