Hear what people said about previous trips:
“I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful Stratford trip. My poor friends who didn’t get to go now have to listen to me exude joy and euphoria about the amazing time I had.”
“Everything you planned and included in this adventure worked together to make the whole trip absolutely fabulous.”
“The workshop, the Q&A sessions, the costume warehouse visit all enhanced the experience of the performances – as well as having a whole busload of people to share the experience with. I sure do want to go next year!”
“It was expertly planned with consideration for everyone’s personal needs and preferences. There were no details lacking and I feel privileged to have this very special opportunity. Thanks so much Heidi! A really great experience – the price is unbeatable – but the best part is going to theatre with a group of theatre junkies! Please know that I appreciate all the work you put into this trip – it’s a terrific experience. Wouldn’t miss it for the world!”
