Open to all CFUW members. Join us for fun outings by local live theatre, musical, and dance groups. Members plan the event including choosing the performance, and buying & distributing the tickets. The day and time is dependent on the available choices, but we prefer Sunday matinees and may also have a pre-show luncheon. Female guests are welcome when we’re trying to attain group rates.
