We Will Rock You

WE WILL ROCK YOU

We Will Rock You - in its first National U. S. Tour - captures the majestic grandeur and rock and roll spirit of Queen in a lavish production that has been celebrated around the world and is still breaking box office records in London.

Boom Boom Clap!  It's the thunderous roar of revolution with the blockbuster hits of the legendary Queen, driving it's epic story in the future, computer generated music reigns, live rock is outlawed and conformity is enforced - until a pair of young renegades dare to break free and search for a long-buried electric guitar.  Before "Another One Bites the Dust," and you can be sure our hero’s will find "Somebody To Love."

THAT'S AMAZING: 30 Years of Huell Howser

Friday, September 19, 2014

The joy that the late TV legend Huell Howser shared with generations of Californians infuses a new permanent exhibit,  sponsored by the Automobile Club of So. California and housed in Chapman University's Leatherby Libraries.  Howser, who died a little over a year ago, wanted Chapman to have his life's work so it might be shared with anyone interested in the many things that fascinated him and his viewers of shows such as "California’s Gold."  In the last several years of his life, Howser forged a strong personal bond with the University.  He made generous donations, including his personal art collection, his collection of show memorabilia, notes and papers relating to his work, and tapes of all of his more than 900 episodes of "California’s Gold."    We will have lunch at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner Restaurant.  After visiting the Huell Howser Exhibit and after eating lunch, we will have some free time in Old Town Orange, which includes a voucher for a treat at Watson's Drug Store and Old Fashioned Soda Fountain before boarding the bus for the trip home.

  • Cost: $50 per person
  • Leave: 10:30 am (Spot Time: 10:15 am)
  • Return: 5:30 pm (approx)
