THEATRE ORANGEVILLE – The Team On The Hill
Our day begins at the Alton Mills Arts Centre, featuring shops and galleries, followed by lunch at the Greystones Inn. Once again, we are going to Theatre Orangeville where we will see The Team on the Hill, a world premiere drama from Dan Needles, the Canadian creator of the Wingfield Series.
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 5 & TUESDAY, JUNE 11, 2013
This year, we are visiting three wineries located close together in beautiful, rural countryside, surrounded by vineyards. We are running the trip twice, in order to accommodate everyone and we are limiting participation to 30 people for each departure. This does make the day a little more costly, but we believe the resulting experience with fewer people in the wineries is much more enjoyable.
