Last summer many CBI members relaxed and were entertained as together they enjoyed some of our local theater. Let's do it again! We have reserved tickets (at discounted rates) for 4 shows in the next two months.

We will gather at the Golden Bough Theater on Saturday evening, July 1 for the 7:30 performance of "Peter and the Starcatcher." This fun prelude to Peter Pan is great for all ages. Our discount ticket prices are: adults $35, seniors $28, teachers and military $16, students $12, and children under twelve $8. So that we can keep these discounted prices PLEASE RSVP to CBI for this show by June 16.

We have three more theater events lined up for July and August.  More information on the upcoming shows will be in the June Shofar newsletter and future e-bulletin announcements.
