Day Trips


Ford Rogue Plant Factory Tour

Don’t miss the unique opportunity to witness and explore the production of the Ford F-150. The tour of the plant will feature 2 theatre experiences, one highlighting the history, the other the innovation of manufacturing. We will view the assembly line in action from an observation deck and have the opportunity to learn about the Living Roof, a 10 acre ground cover roof top that has proven to be just as fascinating and innovative as the factory tour itself. We will enjoy lunch at Ford’s Garage before our mid-day tour. Register in-person at the Bennett Recreation Center. Departs from the Howell VG’s.

Cost: $84/person

Midlife Crisis at Cornwell’s Turkeyville

With a balanced look at the ‘joys’ of growing older, through a cast of three men and three women, MID-LIFE CRISIS! strikes a chord with anyone regardless of age. A series of scenes and sketches poke fun at the frustrations of mammograms, love handles, weekend warriors and proctology exams. The cleverly crafted songs celebrate forgetfulness, reading glasses, and menopause, but also touch on the sentimental wisdom that the later years afford us. MID-LIFE CRISIS! is a hilarious romp with an honest humor about the trials and tribulation of the unavoidable aging process. Departs from the Bennett Rec Center.

Cost: $65/person

The Marvelous Wonderettes

This hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives, the girls serenade us with classic 50’s hits including “Lollipop”, “Dream Lover”, and “Stupid Cupid”. When the girls reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion, we learn about the past decade’s highs and lows. We will enjoy a plated lunch at Mitchell’s Fish Market before heading to Meadow Brook Theatre for the show. Note: You will be contacted 2 weeks prior to the tour so you can make you meal selection.
