Please join RCAH for the tenth annual bus trip to Stratford, Ontario on Saturday, September 10, 2016. We will see one matinee and one evening performance and return that same day. As students who attended previously know, this is a great opportunity to see outstanding performances of plays by William Shakespeare and others.

The cost for taking part in this year's trip is $80. RCAH will provide transportation, and box lunches will be available for order in advance at $7/lunch. Individuals will also have the option of purchasing their lunch at a Stratford restaurant.

To sign up, contact Dawn Janetzke at (517) 884-0383 or via email at janetzk7@msu.edu for additional details and the registration form.

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don’t delay. The deadline for receiving your order form and payment is Friday, July 15. We must order and pay for tickets in advance; therefore, there will be NO refunds.

Due to stricter border crossing requirements you must have a passport or a Michigan enhanced driver’s license. You will not be allowed to board the bus without one of these pieces of identification.
