American Stage Annual Holiday at The Breakers!

THE DATES: December 14 - 18, 2015

the breakers

Want to make this holiday season extra special? We’ve made this trip the past two years, and everyone says it’s one of our best. Plus, no long travel days and no airplanes! Although we won’t be traveling very far, when we reach our destination, we will enjoy holiday cheer, decorations, and festivities at one of the finest ocean-front paradises in the world – the five-star Breakers in Palm Beach. We’ll also enjoy the beautiful displays of decked out mansions, exclusive shopping areas, and of course, theatre.

HERE'S THE EXCITING PLAN: On December 14th, our private coach will pick us up and take us to Palm Beach, stopping for lunch along the way. We will check into the hotel and have a nice group dinner that evening (you’ll have breakfast daily in the opulent hotel dining room). We’ll be planning several activities and outings in the Palm Beach area including:

  • a visit to the Boca Raton Museum of Art and its superb assembly of works by modern masters including Degas, Matisse, Modigliani, and Picasso.
  • a visit to the Hoffman Chocolate Factory which is well-known in South Florida for its elaborate holiday displays.
  • great theater!

We’ll attend three plays at the area’s finest professional theater companies: the electrifying Broadway musical, Billy Elliot at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre; The History Boys, by Alan Bennett, a Tony-award winning play that provocatively explores the mission of education at Palm Beach Dramaworks; and the first annual Holiday Spectacular at The Wick in Boca including South Florida’s best singers and dancers as well as guest stars and a live orchestra. Additionally, we will enjoy two group lunches dinners. You’ll also have free time to enjoy the wonderful five-star amenities at The Breakers.

We certainly hope that you will consider joining your Tripper friends for another memorable American Stage experience. If you haven’t traveled with us before, you’ll be sure to make new friends, and if you have, you’ll enjoy catching up with the group.
