Come join us on a day full of Holiday Fun! We will take a  charter bus ride to Grand Rivers Kentucky! First for lunch we will indulge in  some of the finest down home country cooking around at “Patti’s 1880’s Settlement” restaurant.

After we eat, we will entertained by the matinee show  of “Variety! Christmas Spectacular” at the Badgett Playhouse. Memories! The  show features Christmas favorites from “Rudolph” to “O Holy  Night”. Join the cast as they reflect on their favorite Christmas  memories. Some of these memories are humorous, some are touching, but they are  sure to remind everyone of those experiences that make this time of year so  special. Music! From Bluegrass to the Temptations, Bing Crosby to Elvis,  Variety! lives up to its name as there is something for everyone!

One highlight  of the show is the acappella caroling section that includes sections from many  time-honored carols. & More! Comedy is a large part of this year’s
production as one unsuspecting audience member is “volunteered” to be
a part of the show. And then there is a tribute to Elvis and his “Blue
Christmas” in only the way that a really poor impersonator can do… The
Meaning of Christmas. The show closes with songs and words that reflect the
true meaning of the season. “O Holy Night” is becoming a new
tradition for Variety! as it points to the birth of Christ as the focal point
of this celebration. In addition to being entertained, you will be encouraged
and uplifted.”

After the show you will be free to go around to the gift shops, playground areas, and view the 500,000 Christmas lights for about an hour and a half.

Finally after all that fun we will load on the bus and head back to Cape Girardeau. We will be  stopping at a gas station (not a restaurant) after we leave Grand Rivers if  anyone would like anything to eat. The bus will leave from the Osage Centre at  8:30AM, and return home around 8 or 8:30 PM. The fee for the trip will include  the bus ride and your ticket to the show.

Dinner at Patti’s will not be included so please bring money for dinner  and souvenirs.  Because we are taking  such a large group, we will have a limited menu to choose from.  You may pick up a menu at the A.C. Brase  Arena for your convenience. Limited space available! Sign up today! Registration required.
