  • Due to the overwhelming response for “Ring of Fire” at the Plymouth Playhouse, a second trip has been planned. The itinerary will be the same on Friday, April 26, as those who will be going next week. We would leave around 9 a.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. Reviews have been excellent for this tribute to the man who wrote and performed some of the best that’s ever been recorded – the music of Johnny Cash. We would need signup by April 11 for this outing.
    Because of the early spring in 2012, we did not visit the Tulip Festival in Orange City, Iowa. This year seems to be a bit different and so plans are to go Thursday, May 16, for the festivities and tulips in bloom. Registration is needed by May 9 for this outing.
    A small block of tickets have been reserved on the main floor for “Wicked” at the Orpheum Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 12 matinee. These need to be claimed by April 15. Additional tickets in other areas can be added.
