SUPPORT FLORIDA REP +
LONDON 2018 WITH FLORIDA REP ENSEMBLE MEMBERS!
To celebrate Florida Rep’s 20th Anniversary, Florida Rep invites you to join them on a trip to London! This will be our third extraordinary visit to London and the only trip we offer this season.
The trip is scheduled for June 2 through 10, 2018, the perfect time to be in London. We are excited about our accommodations at The Cavendish Hotel, principally because of its location on prestigious Jermyn Street in central London. This 4-star hotel is perfectly located for those, like us, seeking the thrill of London Theatre, world-class shopping, and culture. The hotel is near Big Ben, Hyde Park, and some of the best food and shopping stops in London. And speaking of food, a full English breakfast is included daily with our stay!
Other great news: Phill Ward and his “London Arts Discovery” team will once again lead our tour every step of the way giving us an exceptional, one-of-a-kind experience that only “London Arts Discovery” can offer. As an example, from previous trips, we had a remarkable experience seeing Oscar-winner Ralph Fiennes and Vanessa Redgrave in Richard III in an intimate 250-seat theatre! I can tell you, as avid theatre-goers our entire lives, this was one of our most cherished theatre experiences!
Other unique past trip experiences included a private behind-the-scenes tour of The House of Commons and The House of Lords, with a private talk with a lobbyist. Another favorite memory was an afternoon tea and informative discussion with London’s lead theatre critic, Michael Billington. Private transportation is always arranged for us to and from the theatres. Phill and his team are always available to advise us on ways to fill our spare time or help with any challenges that arise. Just like a Florida Rep season, performance selection on the trip offers a wide range of theatre – musicals, comedies, new plays, and classics at such famous theatres like The National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Stratford-upon-Avon, Almeida, Donmar Warehouse, and of course, London’s famous West End. Most of our theatre experiences are enhanced by post-show talks with a member of the cast. Exact selections will not be known until spring, but just like Florida Rep, Phill and “London Arts Discovery” have never let us down! To offer more travel flexibility for participants, we are not including airfare in the price so you can have full control of your itinerary and the freedom to fly from Ft. Myers or your northern home and/or visit other European countries before or after our time together in London.
WARNING: This trip is already half full and almost certain to sell out, as we always try to keep the group small, which I’m sure you agree is more fun. Twenty years is worth celebrating, don’t you agree? Splurge and come with us! Next season, we will not be going to London. Instead, we will return to the Shaw Festival and New York City. For more information about our upcoming trip, please contact Renee, Carrie, me, or anyone who has gone to London with us before. We have complete confidence it’s going to be an amazing trip!
