Sunday morning, January 30th, was a cold and gloomy day - until we stepped into the vast and beautifully decorated entry of the Drury Lane Theatre in Oak Brook Terrace. IL.

In spite of the weather, 31 members of the CTCC arrived for brunch and a play. Once we were all as­sembled, we entered the large banquet hall where we were seated at our assigned tables and served endless orange juice and champagne. 1, and a few others at the table, immediately made mimosas. We were now ready to choose our feast.
The brunch was fabulous with 13 stations of food to choose from - too many to list. Whether you wanted breakfast, lunch or dinner, the choices were bountiful with desserts "to die for". Absolutely scrumptious! Not a soul left that room hungry. If they did - shame on them!

Completely content, we moved on to the theatre where we saw the Tony Award winning musical. Monty Python's SPAMALOT, which is based on the classic comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

The play is a hysterically funny spoof with King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table on their quest from God to find the Holy Grail. During their adventure, they encounter some rude Frenchmen, killer rabbits, flying cows and continued countless silly antics of sidesplitting laughter. The acting was great and their singing voices superb.

Everyone enjoyed the play and left the theatre with a song reminder to "ALWAYS LOOK ON THE BRIGHT SIDE OF LIFE."

Marylu & Pete did a great job of picking this play.

The members who enjoyed the afternoon were: Pete & Marylu Kramer, Bill & Liz Werth, Karen Kelly, Len & Irene Vinyard, Bob Sroka, Lloyd & Joan Schellin, Ken & Kathy Smizinski, Len & Mary Keil, Bob & Sue Wenderski, Gary & Debbie Smithe. Joe & Jeanette Wintz, Doug & Soon Rogers. Laura Hascek & Mike Cielinski, Gail Hascek, Ron & Donna Pavlak, Ed Levin & Rose Kovalenko. Jerry & Doreen Michna,
