Make plans to attend musical next summer

Published: Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 6:08 a.m. CST

For those who have seen the musical “Phantom of the Opera,” this new Broadway production is “stunning, intense and spectacular.”

Having seen this phenomenal production about four times in various cities, I am definitely curious to see the new design, costumes, staging, and choreography. I know that you come home starry eyed, singing or humming the songs, and there are so many of them. Not too many musicals can claim that.

I know that my children and I and our friends have gathered around the piano singing these songs over and over. To me, it is the most romantic play ever written; the music is beautiful and haunting.

So if you can join us on July 26, 2014, to see it in Milwaukee, we would love to have you join our bus tour. We intend to do some sightseeing before we stop at the Milwaukee Art Museum to have a picnic in the lawn. Cost is only $82 for coach bus, ticket, and buffet dinner after the show.

Exposure to the arts is very important, and this is one fun way to do so. I hope parents sign up with their children, especially as this is during summer vacation. For questions or more information, email me at or call 815-652-4446 and leave a message.

Yes. Sterling and Dixon have had bans for years. It’s time for Rock Falls to impose a ban.
No. It would be too great a burden for homeowners to dispose of fallen leaves in other ways.
