We are excited to announce the Colonial Players’ 2018 trip to New York City! The dates for the trip are set for the weekend of February 24th and 25th and as with previous trips, 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.

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, if we have enough people signed up, we will do as we did last year and rent a bus for the whole group (which would be cheaper, depending upon the number of people) and so reduce the price per person.

Here is the itinerary:

Saturday, February 24th

  • 8:00 AM (approx.): Meet at BWI to take the morning train up to Penn Station
  • 12:00 PM (approx): We 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, February 25th

  • Everyone has the option to see a matinee on Sunday (again, either purchasing tickets ahead of time or at TKTS that day.
  • 7:00 PM: We get back on the train for the trip home.

This package includes:

  • Train (or bus) up to New York and bac
  • 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 traveling by yourself but are interested in sharing a room. 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 December 15th. 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.
