WILLOW RUN Comes to Chelsea

Theatre, Lunch & Discussion

OLLI Travel OLLI Travel
It is only through the magic of the theater that Willow Run could possibly come to Chelsea. Join us on this day trip which will include a performance of WILLOW RUN at the Purple Rose Theatre. WILLOW RUN is a world premiere by Jeff Duncan.
The original music is by Jeff Daniels and his son, Ben.

The play follows the journey of four women who migrated from all over America to find new lives at the Willow Run Bomber Plant located near Ypsilanti. The plant employed 40,000 employees, mostly women, who turned out B-24 Bombers at the rate of one every 55 minutes.

Lunch at Terry B’s Restaurant in Dexter will precede the matinee performance of the play. Jeff Duncan, the author of WILLOW RUN, will join us for lunch and provide us with a presentation regarding the play. Following lunch, Jeff will be with us at the Purple Rose Theatre for the performance and will participate in the “talkback” after the play. Boarding begins at 10:15 a.m. to ensure prompt departure at 10:45 a.m.

This OLLI Out of Town event is for those over 50.
