The cost of the trip, open to all BCCC students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the college, is $200 per person. The registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 12.
The price of the trip includes transportation to and from Durham, brunch and tickets for seats in the orchestra section for Dirty Dancing at the Durham Performing Arts Center in downtown Durham.
The trip will leave the parking lot at BCCC by 7:30 a.m. and travel to Cary for a buffet brunch at Herons restaurant, located at The Umstead Hotel. Herons is the signature restaurant at the hotel, offering homegrown fruits, vegetables and herbs from their nearby dedicated farm. Herons has been recognized by Food & Wine, Condé Nast Traveler and Southern Living in addition to receiving numerous awards including five stars from Forbes Travel Guide and five diamonds from the American Automobile Association.
After brunch, the group will travel to Chapel Hill to visit A Southern Season, a popular specialty food, gift and entertaining store. Since its creation in 1975, A Southern Season has been known throughout the region for the breadth and quality of its gourmet food, wine, housewares and cookware.
After visiting the store, travelers will have time to relax at University Mall before attending a matinee performance of Dirty Dancing. Based on the popular movie, the stage performance tells the story of Baby and Johnny who come together for what will be the most challenging and triumphant summer of their lives. The musical features hit songs such as “Hungry Eyes,” and the heart-stopping “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.”
After the performance, participants will depart Durham for the trip home and enjoy light refreshments on the bus.
