NIU Annuitants plan trip to see ‘Holiday Inn’

The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association is planning a trip to the Fireside Theatre in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, to see “Holiday Inn” on Wednesday, Nov. 3.

Seats are available, but are limited to 25 because of COVID-19 protocols. The reservation deadline is Oct. 1, or until seats are sold out.

Irving Berlin’s “Holiday Inn” is based on the classic film starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. Jim, a song and dance man and his new love, Linda, turn a Connecticut farmhouse into a fabulous inn that’s only open on holidays. All is well until Jim’s best friend Ted comes along with his own ideas about Linda and the inn. The musical features thrilling dance numbers, laugh-out-loud comedy and a parade of hit songs including “Blue Skies,” “Easter Parade,” “Cheek to Cheek,” “White Christmas” and more.

The group will depart DeKalb at 9 a.m. for the 1:15 p.m. matinee performance. Lunch is included. The fee is $145 for members of the NIU Annuitants Association.
