Trip to the Newseum – Creating Camelot:
The Kennedy Photography of Jacques Lowe
Wednesday, November 8, depart the J 10:15am; return 3:30pm
To mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy, the Newseum is bringing back this photo exhibit which showcases more than 70 intimate and iconic images of President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and their children, taken by Kennedy’s personal photographer, Jacques Lowe. His photographs helped create the legend of the Kennedy presidency known as “Camelot.” His extraordinary access produced some of the most famous images of Kennedy, but the 9/11 attacks destroyed his negatives which were stored in a vault in the World Trade Center. Using contact sheets provided by Lowe’s estate, the Newseum has never-before-seen pictures of Jacqueline Kennedy.
There are many other exhibits to view and restaurants in which you can sit, relax, and eat if desired.
Fee: $16/ $10 J member for bus transportation.
Purchase $19.95 (plus tax) senior ticket (good
for two days) at box office.
RSVP: Submit payment and registration form to the J, Attn: Michele Endick. Make check payable to JCCNV with “11/8” on memo line.
The Pajama Game at Arena Stage
(This trip is full. Contact Michele to be placed on the waitlist.)
Wednesday, November 15, depart the J 10am; return 3:30pm
“The Sleep-Tite Pajama Factory is a tiptop model of efficiency – so why are
things getting so steamy? It could have something to do with how hard new
superintendent Sid Sorokin has fallen for Babe Williams, the trouble-making
head of the union grievance committee. Sparks really start to fly when a workers’
strike pits management against labor and ignites an outrageous battle of the sexes.
Packed with seductive dance numbers like “Steam Heat” and “Hernando’s
Hideaway,” the best way to ensure a good night’s rest during the hectic holiday
season is to play The Pajama Game!” — Arena Stage Website.
An early lunch (sandwich, chips, fruit salad, bottle of water) at Arena Stage is included in the fee.
Fee: $82/ $74 J member (includes bus transportation, matinee ticket, and pre- show lunch)

Crazy for You at Signature Theatre
Sunday, January 14, depart J 12:45pm; return 6:30pm
“Beloved songs meet sensational dance in the ultimate feel-good Tony Award®-winning musical comedy for the holiday season. A musical-loving banker sent to foreclose on a small-town theatre decides to revive it instead with the magic of the Follies, some slapstick comedy, and a whole lot of charm. Flush with mistaken identities, a classic love story and 1930s glamour, Crazy for You radiates with playful humor and high-energy show-stopping numbers. A wealth of Gershwin tunes including I’ve Got Rhythm, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Nice Work If You Can Get It fuse with exhilarating tap numbers in this triumphant musical celebration.” —Signature Theatre website
