Hairspray & Temple Day!

For members of the Busy Gals book club & anyone else who would like to go:
We are leaving Sidney at 1 PM on Friday Feb. 11 for Billings for a show & the temple. Monette will drive her van, & I will drive our bigger car (big trunk!). We will go out to dinner when we arrive in Billings. We will be joined by Kris's sister, Christine Alexander, Katie Berry, & maybe Mary Karren! Please let me know where you would like to go out to eat!

After dinner we have 9 tickets for rows 1 & 2 for Friday, Feb. 11, 7:30 PM at the Billings Studio Theater to see "Hairspray", the musical story of plus-sized Tracy Turnblad who wants to be a dancer on the teen dance TV show. The musical is a comedy, set during the 1960's against the backdrop of segregation & civil rights. I have purchased a ticket for the following ladies: Lorraine, Kaylene, Monette, Kris, Kris's Sister, Christine Alexander, Vena, & Shana K. You may pay me (Peggy Ann) $20 for your ticket, please. Tickets are non-cash-refundable. If we are unable to attend due to weather, they would issue a credit for a future show.

I have reservations for 3 rooms at the Super 8 @ $44 each. That would be 3 or 4 people per room (2 queen sized beds non-smoking) for about $15 per person. Free "continental" breakfast includes ceral, oatmeal, boiled eggs, yogurt, & toast (I've seen it - it's not much, but it's quick & free). This reservation is not paid for yet, so we could still change it. If everyone would rather, we could stay at the Hampton Inn for about $80 per night ($20 - $27 per person); that would include a hot breakfast. Let me know your opinions.

We plan to leave the hotel about 7:20 AM for a 7:40 arrival at the temple; the session starts at 8:10 AM. Those who are not attending the temple can go shopping. After the temple, we will go to Costco & wherever anyone else wants to go. Or breakfast/brunch. Or lunch after shopping. Suggestions welcome.

A few of us may need to be back to Sidney by 6 PM. If that is the case, my car will leave Billings about 2 PM. The other vehicle could come at their leisure.

Additional tickets to the play could still be purchased if others are interested (Mary Karren will already be in Billings if the roads are good; she may wish to go to the play with us & plans on buying a ticket closer to the date). Currently we have 8 people riding in the vehicles from Sidney. We have 9 people attending the play (not everyone coming is attending the play), and 9 or 10 people for the hotels rooms, with 8 to 11 people attending the temple! WE'RE GONNA HAVE A BLAST!! Call if you need more info! 488-1666; 480-4643
