Starbright Christmas – Petrolia # 1 # 2         Cancelled!
Date: Tuesday, December 7, 2021 & Wednesday, December 8, 2021
Please note: In an effort to get Starbright Christmas back on our schedule as soon as possible, I jumped right
in when the Victoria Playhouse announced they would open for the production in December of 2021. I quickly
announced it in October, booked a bus and the luncheon at our usual restaurant and was looking
forward to this trip. The next couple of weeks bought forth many questions… Crossing the border has proved to be
much more involved than just showing your ID and proof of vaccine at the border. So, I am sadly cancelling the trips
to Starbright Christmas for 2021. I have asked them to hold our deposits and move them to the Starbright Shows in
2022.

They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever

“on your own!” Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the true-life

cultural, social and economic leaders in an era of great optimism, as well as a turbulent time of economic
depression and world war. They were nationally prominent and they owned more than one house, but Southeast
Michigan was their home. Here they built their final residence along the shores of Lake St. Clair, at a place
known locally as Gaukler Pointe. Their impressive yet unpretentious home is where they raised and nurtured
their four children – Henry II, Benson, Josephine and William – in a safe and loving environment. It reflects their
love of family as well as their mutual passion for art and quality design.
Lunch at an area restaurant will be included prior to our tour!  This will be a relaxing one-day trip and we should
return to Clio about 5:30 p.m.

“Romantic Roads of Germany and Oberammergau” includes some of the country’s most iconic cities such as
Berlin, Lubeck, Hamburg, Bremen, Hamelin, Kassel, Marburg, Wurzburg, and of course, Oberammergau. This
12 day trip will take us through many areas that were settings for Grimm’s Fairy Tales and we’ll see many castles.
The Passion Play began all the way back in 1633. Oberammergau was suffering from the Bubonic Plague.
The surviving villagers appealed for Divine intervention to save their families. They vowed that if God were to spare
them, they would perform a Passion Play every ten years. They say not a single person fell victim to the Plague after
that. Keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the first play in 1634 and have continued to do
so throughout the centuries. Today, many of Oberammergau’s residents still take part in this powerful
work of art featuring dramatic performances, beautiful music and choral accompaniment.
This newly revised trip will include a high speed train between Berlin and Hamburg. The Passion Play will be a
highlight. This 13 day trip includes 11 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 6 dinners. The airfare and luggage handling are also
included. Detailed flyers are available.

Date: Thursday, November 10, 2022
Cost: $115.00 per person
Departure: 3:30 p.m.. from the Clio Kmart
“Come From Away” is based on the true story of when the isolated community of Gander, Newfoundland played host to the world. What started as an average day in a small town turned into an international sleep-over when 38 planes, carrying thousands of people from across the globe, were diverted to Gander’s air strip on September 11, 2001. Undaunted by culture clashes and language barriers, the people of Gander cheered the stranded travelers with music, an open bar and the recognition that we’re all part of a global family.
This trip includes the motorcoach transportation and seats for the show at DeVos Performance Hall in Grand Rapids. A
stop for supper will be on your own en route to the theatre.
