Pretty Woman (Pre-Broadway Run)

broadway-chicago

Saturday, March 31, 2018

Call us opportunists! We don't care.

UW-Colleges Southeast Region takes every opportunity to bring you the best of Broadway. Often, it is an award-winning musical which is "on the road", but sometimes it's to a show before it makes it to Broadway.

Pretty Woman is premiering in Chicago in a Pre-Broadway run, and UW-Colleges can take you there. With music by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance from the Reckless album featuring classics like “Summer of 69”, released close to the same time as the popular Julia Roberts’ film Pretty Woman. The book for the musical was written by the recently deceased Garry Marshall and is now destined to dazzle Broadway this summer… but you get to see it first. This day trip includes Orchestra seating, a fantastic lunch at The Italian Village, and transportation with host, retired drama director Vic Passante on a Coach USA, (a.k.a. our “University on Wheels”). 

Yes. We are opportunists. We are near Chicago. We have a lively group of theater enthusiasts. We are YOUR connection to great theater. We are taking this opportunity to bring a group to see this show at a ticket price anyone can afford.

The $269 package is the price audiences will pay for a Broadway ticket, but our package also includes Orchestra seating, a fantastic lunch at The Italian Village, and transportation with host and retired drama director vic.passante@uwc.edu, on our Coach USA, a.k.a. our "University on Wheels."

Take advantage of the opportunity and join your travel friends on this unique Chicago day trip. Register today!

Two Rivers: F.L. Wright and Hamilton Block Print

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

UW Colleges is proud to feature artist Tony Drehfal on a daytrip to Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum, and to Still Bend, a Frank Lloyd Wright home in Two Rivers. Tony is internationally recognized as one of the world’s foremost wood engravers. He presently serves on the Wood Engraver's Network leadership team, which is now in the process of partnering with the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum to create a wood engraving exhibit, classroom, and library space within their Two Rivers museum. At the museum, you will receive a guided tour of the world’s largest premier wood type collection.  A tour of Still Bend will round out your experience in Two Rivers. The Bernard Schwartz House is also known as Still Bend or Life Magazine's "Dream House,” since F. L. Wright originally designed the house for the magazine in 1938. The Schwartz House is one of the few Wright homes that allows guests to spend the night. Although you won’t be spending the night there, you will have an opportunity to have lunch in the Still Bend.
