The Nutcracker’s Nutz! — Daytrippers Dinner Theater
Join the Saints Club for a funny holiday show—with the Daytrippers Dinner Theater!   This play sets scene in a Michigan retirement community where their residents’ council has performed, “A Christmas Carol” for years as their annual fundraiser. This year, the actor who plays Scrooge can no longer remember his lines so the director opts to look for another script.  Much to the director’s chagrin, the new script contains ballet—and it’s too late to find something new to replace the replacement show, and the sold-out show must go on!  This fun daytrip includes a luncheon buffet of pork loin with cherry glaze, chicken cordon bleu, wild rice, tossed green salad, pistachio salad, rolls, cupcakes and coffee or tea.  Call us at 931-3310 to sign up for this delightful Christmas comedy!
     When:  Wednesday, December 17th
     Deadline:  December 3rd
     Depart:  10:30 a.m. from NCB
     Return:  5:00
     Cost:  $53 per person
