    Trip: A Christmas For Carol

    Tuesday, November 17th

    Departing at 9:45am, Returning at 6:00pm

    To Newport Playhouse & Cabaret Theater in Newport, RI

    During the holiday season, Carol tends to take Christmas way too far at work with decorations, presents, and overbearing traditions that not everyone appreciates in the office.  Her co-workers love Carol, but this time of year she gets on everyone’s last nerve, so they formulate a plan for the company party that night!  With wacky office hijinks, pranks, and even an office romance, will her co-workers be able to help Carol remember the true meaning of Christmas?

    COST: $92 per person includes charter bus transportation, fabulous buffet lunch, matinee performance of “A Christmas For Carol”, and Holiday Cabaret Show.  Driver tip is not included.
