 The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association will travel to Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier to see the matinee of “Sunday in the Park with George” on Oct. 27. Seats are available.

Chicago’s award-winning theater kicks off the fall season with Sondheim and Lapine’s soaring musical about a painter’s struggle between creating art and living life. The dynamic setting of the Navy Pier’s Courtyard Theater will transform into a life-size masterpiece, bringing audience members closer than ever to this work inspired by The Art Institute of Chicago’s celebrated Seurat painting.  

The group will depart from Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center parking lot at 11 a.m. and enjoy free time at Navy Pier for lunch (on your own) and/or visit the Stained Glass Museum at Navy Pier. Following the 3 p.m. show, the bus will return to DeKalb.

For reservations or information, call Carder Travel at 815-756-1547.
