Feb. 6

The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association will travel to Chicago Shakespeare Theatre on Navy Pier to see an evening performance of “Gypsy” on Feb. 6. Seats are still available.

This classic musical is inspired by memoirs of the burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee. Tony Award nominee Louise Pitre makes her Chicago Shakespeare debut as Rose, the most infamous of all stage mothers. Pitre’s career highlights include many critically acclaimed performances in the theater, on television and concert stages across North America and Europe.

The group will depart from NIU at 3 p.m. and Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center at 3:15 p.m. Attendees can spend time at  Navy Pier for dinner (on their own) and/or visit the Stained Glass Museum at Navy Pier. Following the 7 p.m. show, the bus will return to DeKalb.

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