Join us for a fun-filled trip to the Newport Playhouse on March 26, 2015. Enjoy the comedic show “When the Cat Gets Away. This play is about what happens when two wives go off on a trip to Paris, and then the "mice will play". Their philandering husbands agree to invite two charming little sex kittens over. Well, you already know what happens, don't you? The wives come home prematurely! Prior to the show, enjoy a buffet lunch then enter into their theatre to see the show, followed by a fun-filled Cabaret. Price: $106 per person. Secure your reservation soon; reservations are filling fast for this fun day.
