OLLI ABROAD! Tickets on sale starting October 16

October 16 @ 8:00 am - October 30 @ 5:00 pm

$35 – $50

The OLLI Players are back and you won’t want to miss the fun. This fast-paced, lively musical, directed by Cheryl Goodman-Morris and written by Jack Seybold, will warm your heart and set your toes to tapping.

The 90-minute show sets sail with intrepid OLLI cast members boarding the S.S. Socrates to take classes and broaden their horizons. What follows is a bit of everything — shipboard entertainment, a double love story, and intrigue, as nefarious billionaire Ronald Bedminster plots a hostile takeover of OLLI. Fortunately, the day is saved and no one, including OLLI, is lost at sea!

Tickets go on sale October 16 for this OLLI fundraiser. Check out the website for ticket purchasing and more information.
