The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at SOU invites the southern Oregon community to enjoy a new original musical comedy: “OLLI Abroad!”
Audiences will find their hearts warming to tunes like “Someone to Watch Over Me,” and their toes tapping to the likes of “Fascinating Rhythm” plus many more in performances from Nov.1 through Nov. 5. The production is a fundraiser that offers a wonderful time at the theater, community and a great way to support OLLI at SOU.
The 90-minute show sets sail with intrepid OLLI cast members boarding the S.S. Socrates to take classes, have fun and broaden their horizons. What follows is a bit of everything – shipboard entertainment, a double love story and intrigue, as nefarious billionaire Ronald Bedminster plots a hostile takeover of OLLI. Fortunately, the day is saved and no one – including OLLI – is lost at sea.
Tickets can be purchased online now. Don’t delay, as seating is limited, and tickets for this voyage are going fast. Tickets range from $35 to $50. Performances will be held at the Ashland Bellview Grange, at 1050 Tolman Creek Road in Ashland.
SOU’s is among the largest of 125 OLLI programs on college and university campuses across the U.S., with close to 1,700 members at the university’s Ashland and Medford campuses. The SOU program, like others around the country, provides a variety of in-person and online noncredit courses and outdoor activities geared toward adults 50 or better who seek “learning for the joy of learning.” OLLI at SOU invites adults to come for the classes and stay for the connections.
Membership is open to adults of any age, but the program is geared toward those who are 50-plus. More information is available on the OLLI website.
