  • Fee: $100.00      Capacity Remaining: 23

  • Description:  Get out of your winter rut and travel with OLLI to Riverside Dinner Theater in Fredericksburg. Spend a swell afternoon dining and then enjoying the tuneful, uplifting, and tacky American musical, La Cage aux Folles. Harvey Fierstein wrote the book for La Cage with music by Jerry Herman. The original 1983 Broadway production won six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. La Cage focuses on Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, the Albin, his romantic partner and the nightclub's partner and the nightclub's star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges' son brings home his fiancee's ultra-conservative parents to meet the pair. Be prepared to laugh and be bedazzled by the singing, dancing, and sequins.

  • Description: Join our OLLI Outing to Richmond's Ginter Botanical Garden. Shortly after arriving, we'll take a one hour "Heart of the Garden" tour to explore the Central Garden closest to the Robins Visitor Center. This includes the Conservatory, Fountain Garden, and Four Seasons Garden along with the gallery space of the Kelly Education Center. All outdoor paths are flat, and ramps are available. After the tour, we'll dine together in one of the Garden's beautiful facilities. Everyone should be hungry, and the Savory Lunch Buffet offers a selection of salads, entrees and desserts to please everyone. There will be time in the afternoon to see some of Ginter Garden's dozen themed gardens. The Asian Valley's Japanese maples will surely be spectacular. Also, take a stroll through the Garden Shop which is known for its garden accents, tools, containers and statuary. The OLLI bus has plenty of room for anything you want to buy there.
