Trip proceeds to benefit
Music and Art at Oak Glen
NEW MANCHESTER — There will be an overnight charter tour the weekend of May 9-10, 2020, that will enable families to experience the sights and sounds of New York City.
The trip is open to students of all ages and all school districts, but participating students must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. A highlight of the trip will be orchestra seating to see a performance of “Frozen,” the Broadway musical, at the St. James Theatre.
“The trip will include a complete, sight-filled itinerary for all, but will enable those wanting separate free time to set up much of their own schedule,” according to a news release. Overnight accommodations will be at the historic Wall Street Inn. The cost per person ranges from $277 to $328, based upon double, triple or quad occupancy, and covers round-trip transportation, overnight accommodations and theater seating. All proceeds from the tour will benefit the annual MSL — Music and Art at Oak Glen event. There are a limited number of spaces available.
