Princeton and Festival 56 -- July 28, 2010
OLLI members spent a beautiful summer day exploring Princeton's cultural heritage in late July. The day began with breakfast and a presentation by Dexter Brigham, Executive Artistic Director of Festival 56, Illinois' largest summer theatre festival.
Brigham, a 1998 alumni of Bradley University, spent the morning with OLLI, sharing the history of Festival 56 and colorful anecdotes about growing up in Princeton. Before he left to prepare for the weekday matinee, he guided the group through a tour of the theatre's prop department.
After lunch at the locally owned Wine Cellar, we took a guided tour of Princeton's historic homes and buildings, then enjoyed the performance of "Moon Over Buffalo" at Princeton High School.
