There were 21 of us. Three singles (two of them were sisters) and we were treated as insiders by the couples. Several people who had been on many Road Scholar trips said that this was the best group they had been with--I would heartily agree, even though this was only my 3rd. I most enjoyed seeing the plays and then having a talkback, as well as reading the beginnings of the plays out loud as actors, before we saw the plays. It was like being with old friends, being with this group. Thanks, guys. Barb Bayley

Never having been to Sarasota I had no idea it was such a cultural mecca but a day at the Ringling home and museums and especially the three shows and talkbacks at the Asolo were wonderful. Even the show we didn't like so much was great food for thought and discussion with a very convivial group of fellow theatre lovers. It was a very good week...and so much nicer than being caught in the snow in D.C.!

If you love the theater, this is a great choice. And the Ringling Museum is marvelous. Add warm weather in the middle of an awful winter and you can't miss.

This program greatly enhances the experience of attending plays. A fine instructor discusses the art of acting, prepares you for the plays you are going to see, and leads a fun talk back afterwards.

This was my first-ever Road Scholar experience and I was a little nervous, being a single person. I needn't have been--we were a small group of 16, with other singles to visit with. The group I was with were intelligent, had a sense of humor, discerning minds, and engaged in energetic critiques of the three plays we saw. I love theater and the trips to Asolo, onstage and behind the scenes more than met my expectations. Our schedule kept us busy at all times and was chockfull of entertainment, information, and food, food, food! I can hardly wait to do another trip! Barb Bayley Asolo Theatre Program 02/08-02/13/15.

The Asolo Theatre Program was excellent. I learned so much about theatre from the best of the best and actually got to see 3 productions in the amazing Asolo. Sarasota has phenomenally fine center of culture.

For anyone interested in theater, this program presents a lively, fascinating introduction to all the mystery and excitement that theater represents.

For anyone who enjoys the theater, this program was a delight. The plays were diverse, the theaters very nice, the lecturers excellent, the other participants pleasant and interesting. A very good value for the money.
