Join the Beaufort County Community College Foundation, Saturday, Nov. 17, for a trip to Durham to see the award-winning stage production of Jersey Boys and enjoy a tour of one of the state’s most renowned garden spots.
The trip will also include meals at two popular restaurants in the Triangle region.
The cost of the trip, open to all BCCC students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the college, is $185 per person. The trip is limited to 30 participants so early registration is recommended.
The price of the trip includes transportation to and from Durham, two meals and tickets for seats in the orchestra section for Jersey Boys at the Durham Performing Arts Center in downtown Durham.
The trip will leave the parking lot at BCCC by 7:45 a.m. and arrive at the J.C. Raulston Arboretum at 10 a.m. Once there, the group will tour the nationally acclaimed garden, with one of the largest and most diverse collections of landscape plants adapted for use in the Southeast.
Following this tour, participants will travel to The Pizzeria in Durham’s West Village for a lunch similar to the ones enjoyed by Frankie Valli and his fellow musicians when they were growing up in the Garden State.
After lunch, the group will travel to DPAC in Durham for a matinee performance of Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Four Seasons. This is the story of how four blue-collar kids from New Jersey became one of the greatest successes in pop music history. The musical features hit songs such as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”
After the performance, participants will travel to Raleigh, for dinner at Bella Monica restaurant – a popular neighborhood trattoria. The tour is scheduled to return to Beaufort County around 9:30 p.m.
For more information, or to register, contact Marcia Norwood, Foundation specialist, at 252-940-6218, or Judy Jennette, Foundation director, at 252-940-6326. Information is also available on the BCCC News Blog that can be accessed from the college website at www.beaufortccc.edu.
