See ‘Chicago’ with BCCC Foundation

Published 6:06 pm Saturday, July 7, 2012

Join the Beaufort County Community College Foundation on Aug. 4 for a trip to Durham to see Christie Brinkley in the musical “Chicago” and tour Duke University’s world-famous Lemur Center.

The trip will include lunch at Tyler’s Tap Room on the American Tobacco Campus in Durham and dinner at Tir Na Nog Irish pub in downtown Raleigh.

The cost of the trip, open to all BCCC students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the college, is $165 per person. The registration deadline is Jul 30.

The price of the trip includes transportation to and from Durham, two meals and tickets for seats in the orchestra section for “Chicago” at the Durham Performing Arts Center in downtown Durham.

The trip group leaves the parking lot at BCCC by 7:30 a.m. and arrives at the Lemur Center about 10 a.m. Once there, the group will tour the center, the home of vital research for some 40 years about the lemur species. Visitors to the center will typically observe about 10 different species of lemurs and are encouraged to bring their cameras.

Following this tour, participants will travel to Tyler’s Tap Room at the historic American Tobacco Campus for lunch at noon. After lunch, the group will make its way across the street to DPAC for a matinee performance of “Chicago,” featuring the world-famous model and actress Christie Brinkley in the role of Roxie Hart in her highly anticipated Broadway-tour debut.

After the performance, participants will travel to downtown Raleigh for dinner at about 5:30 p.m. at Tir Na Nog for Irish fare typical of the food that Roxie Hart and others in “Chicago” would have enjoyed.

The tour group is scheduled to return to Beaufort County around 9:30 p.m.
