The dates for the Colonial Players 2017 New York City trip are set for the weekend of March 18th and 19th and as with our 2016 trip, it will be a “Free Range” format where those who have signed up can choose what shows (and how many) they would like to see. We will email a Theatre Packet of shows, ticket websites, and dining options, and we will have an evening in Annapolis beforehand so people can coordinate if they would like to see shows and/or have dinner together in NYC.

As of now, we are planning on taking the train up from BWI Saturday morning and returning Sunday evening, so it will be possible to see a Saturday matinee, Saturday evening and Sunday matinee before returning on the train that evening. However, depending on the number of people who have signed up, we may rent a bus for the whole group (which would potentially be cheaper, depending upon the number of people going) and then reimburse everyone the difference.

Here is the itinerary for the weekend:

Saturday, March 18th

8:00 a.m. (approx.): Meet at BWI to take the morning train to Penn Station, NYC.

12:00 p.m. (approx): Arrive at the Edison Hotel on 47th Street giving everyone enough time to purchase Saturday evening tickets at TKTS, etc. (or for those who have purchased tickets ahead of time, to go to the matinee they have purchased).

Option to have dinner together at Carmines or somewhere else.

Sunday, March 19th

Everyone has the option to see a matinee on Sunday (again, either purchasing tickets ahead of time or at TKTS that day).

7:00 p.m.: Board the train at Penn Station, NYC for the trip home to BWI.

This package includes:

  • Train (or bus) up to New York and back
  • One night, double occupancy hotel room
  • Information on shows, ticket sites and dining options 

The price is $660 per couple but please contact us if you would be participating in the trip by yourself but are interested in sharing a hotel room with another traveler. To reserve your space, you can go to the ticketing website to pay the first payment online at: https://tickets.thecolonialplayers.org or you can contact the Colonial Players’ box office at 410-268-7373 to make your 50% down-payment of $330. The remainder is due by November 13th, 2016. Remember, if we have enough people (approx 30 people) to rent the bus, the price goes down, so please get your friends to come along as well.
