‘The Savannah Sipping Society’
Wednesday, March 22
     We’re on our way to the Old Log Theater after lunch on your own at Maynard’s for The Savannah Sipping Society. Four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate - and an impromptu happy hour - and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost throughout the years. Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment that, unfortunately, reveals she has no life and no idea how to get one. Dot, still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch - and all alone. Earthy and boisterous, Marlafaye, a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. The strength of her desire to establish a new life is equaled only by her desire to wreak a righteous revenge on her ex. Also new to town, Jinx, a spunky ball of fire, offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she overlooks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice. Over the course of six months, fill with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment - and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make old friends.

This City Has No Limits Mystery Tour  
Wednesday, April 5
     Everybody loves a mystery, so let’s do it. We’ll have a snack on the way in case you missed breakfast. After a quick restroom break, we’ll visit an interactive attraction with a rich, deep history in Minnesota. You may also have a few minutes to shop and look around the business district. Then we’ll tour the city to be introduced to local points of interest. Lunch on your own is a little late today, so you may want to have an extra snack along. Our next attraction may have a very personal impact for many of us who have somehow had our paths crossed in some form. You’ll have plenty to talk about as we head for home with a stop and maybe an ice cream cone on the way home.

‘Wife Begins at 40’
Thursday, April 20
     After an included lunch at DayTrippers Dinner Theatre, it’s time for Wife Begins at 40. It’s a laugh-a-minute farcical evening when housewife Linda fans the flames of passion with her mild-mannered, ordinary husband, George. Throw in the assistance (or hindrance as the case may be) of their fun-loving neighbors Roger and Betty, along with George’s live-in father Bernard and their independent son Leonard  - and you have the formula for a belly rolling good time.

‘The Marvelous Wonderettes’
Saturday, April 29, 2017
    We’re going to the Hudson House where we’ll begin with an included dinner. Then it’s time for The Marvelous Wonderettes. This smash off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy, and Suzy - four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In act two the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together. Featuring over 30 classic ’50s and ’60s hits, The Marvelous Wonderettes will keep you smiling in this must-take musical trip down memory lane!

(2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of Martin Luther posting of the 95 Theses.) They live communally in rural North America. We’ll learn about their unique lifestyle, religion, customs, traditions, and history; how they earn their living; and what they do in their leisure time. Bring your billfolds for the opportunity to purchase items they produce at Starland. Then we’ll take a short drive to Bernadotte and visit Ruth Klossner’s Guinness Book of World Record’s Cow MOOseum followed by a tour of the beautiful and historic Bernadotte Lutheran Church.

Barn Quilts III of Carver County   
Thursday, May 18
     We’re at it again with MANY new stops and some exciting highlights! Made for barns, not beds, “barn quilts” are quilt patterns painted on wooden panels that are hung on the exterior walls of historic barns. Why did the family choose their particular quilt block? What is the story behind the quilt? the barn? the farm? Our tour will be fully narrated, and we’ll make numerous stops including the Melichar Art Studio. New highlights include a stop at a quilt shop, an included chicken buffet dinner at the Hillcrest Cafe, and an antique snowmobile collection. Once again, we’ll end our day with a visit to the Bongards Creamery Cheese Shop.

    With many requests, here it is... the U.S. Bank Stadium Tour and More! St. Paul wasn’t the only city to host the crime and corruption of the gangsters. Yes, Minneapolis had them too! Join us on a venture through the crime laden city of Minneapolis with Edna, the Kissing Bandit, and explore the not so wholesome people of this city’s past. Visit the sites of the 3rd Northwestern Bank hold-up by the Barker/Karpis gang, the site of Babyface Nelson’s traffic violation, and the murder site of journalist Walter Liggit. Edna will show you how the Twin Towns transformed one of the largest areas of crime in the country during the 1920’s and 1930‘s. Next, lunch will be on your own at the very popular Keys Nicollet Mall Cafe in the Foshey Tower.

State Capitol/Cherokee Tavern/Fort Snelling National Cemetery Tour

     June 14... Flag Day... and we’re fortunate enough to commemorate with these visits: Experience the grandeur of the People’s House. The State of Minnesota has completed a $310-million project to preserve our 1905 State Capitol - including the restoration of its extensive and amazing artwork. A wonderful included bbq rib and baked chicken buffet lunch at the Cherokee Tavern, a venue we enjoyed for the first time in October, follows our capitol tour. Our final stop is also the final stop for many of our honored veterans and their spouses. Fort Snelling National Cemetery was established on July 14, 1939, nearly 78 years ago. The cemetery serves over 1.4 million veterans in the 5-state area. Over 4,900 burials are conducted each year, and Fort Snelling National Cemetery is the 4th busiest and 10th largest cemetery in the National Cemetery Administration. We’ll be treated to a fully guided drive-through tour and will get to see many of the day-to-day activities that take place there. You will be amazed!

John Davidson: Roots, Roles and Rhymes  
Thursday, August 17
     We’ll begin with an included lunch (site TBD) and then head for the St. Cloud Paramount Theatre for John Davidson: Roots, Roles and Rhymes. He has spent most of his life on one stage or another. Broadway, television, night clubs... he’s done it all. Yet, his most captivating performances are those when it’s just John alone on stage - playing his guitar, singing his songs, spinning his yarns - in an intimate concert setting. In John’s words, “Playing and singing on my own is the most honest, powerful way to tell stories. It gives me the freedom to express emotions without any distractions. In those moments, I feel a one-on-one connection with an audience.”  So, spend some time with John Hamilton Davidson as he unfolds a wonderful concert of Roots, Roles and Rhymes.

‘Life Could Be a Dream’
Wednesday, November 8
     We’re on our way to the Old Log Theater after lunch on your own at Maynard’s for Life Could Be a Dream. This affectionate doo-wop jukebox musical by writer-director Roger Bean (The Marvelous Wonderettes), incorporates hit songs of the 1960s, ranging from “Sh-Boom” and “Rama Lama Ding Dong” to anthems like “Earth Angel”, “Unchained Melody,” “The Great Pretender” and “The Glory of Love.” In small-town Springfield, the local radio station is sponsoring a rock-and-roll contest, and go-getter Denny is convinced he can win and become a star. He enlists his klutzy, nerdish, endearing friend Eugene and church-choir singer Wally to join him. Needing a sponsor they apply to the proprietor of the local auto chain. He sends his top mechanic, handsome, hunky Skip, and his pretty daughter Lois to audition the guys, and by the end they’re incorporated into the new group, Denny and the Dreamers. This is pure fun, and every note counts in this rousing good-time musical.
