Crawford to host travel/theater trip to NYC

Ever been curious about what goes on behind the scenes at a Broadway show? Here’s your chance to find out, with Theatre TJC’s annual six-day, five-night theater excursion to New York City, set for Monday-Saturday, June 7-12.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who’s interested in seeing the best live theatre performances today," said Dr. David W. Crawford, of TJC’s speech and theatre department. "Every day will bring a new opportunity to experience some of the best entertainment Broadway and Off-Broadway have to offer."

During their stay in the Big Apple, tour participants, accompanied by Crawford, will see four Broadway shows as well as one Off-Broadway performance.

Other items on the itinerary include: a tour of the Players Club; three workshops with New York theater professionals, and various sight-seeing tours and shopping visits to Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Greenwich Village and Central Park.

Crawford said the group will also continue what he calls "the eternal search for the perfect New York pizza and cheesecake."

Cost of the trip includes all transportation, lodging, luggage-handling, accident insurance, show tickets, Metro Card for bus and subway transportation in the city, tour guide gratuity and motorcoach transportation between airport and hotel.

In addition to registration for the Summer I theatre appreciation class, the trip cost is: $1,750 per person for quad occupancy; $1,850 per person for triple occupancy; $2,100 for double occupancy; and $2,800 per person for single occupancy.

The class schedule includes: Orientation Sessions at 6 p.m. on June 1; in Jean Browne Theatre on the TJC campus; the trip June 7-12; and a wrap-up session 7 p.m. June 15 in Jean Browne Theatre.
